Short description:

After completion of this course student should know basic concepts of quantitative instrumental analysis, be able to describe and explain operation of common analytical apparatus (pH-meter, spectrometer, chromatograph) as well as perform simple analytical measurements (determinations) using these methods/instruments.

Full description:

The laboratory experiments demonstrate common instrumental techniques of quantitative analytical chemistry. Students use various methods such as UV-Vis spectrometry, atomic absorption spectrometry; various electrochemical techniques (potentiometry with ion selective electrodes, voltammetry, polarography). In the course of each exercise the analyses of real samples (waters, alloys, food etc) are performed.
