Examination arrangement

Examination arrangement: Written examination and Work
Grade: Letters

Evaluation form Weighting Duration Examination aids Grade deviation
work 30/100
Home examination 70/100 4 hours A

Course content

Titration: acid-base complex, gravimetry, Qualitative and quantitative analysis: detection and quantification limits, statistics, use of log diagrams, digital tools
Spectroscopy: IR, atomic absorption, voltametry, potentiometry, environmental analysis and speciation
CChromatographic theory and principles, adsorption chromatography (normal and reverse phase), GC, HPLC

Learning outcome

The student should
- Be able to describe the principles of basic analytical methods and be able to perform calculations that belong to the quantitative analysis.
- Be able to use basic quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis to produce own results in the laboratory, and be able to present and evaluate the results in writing.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, theory exercises and laboratory work with compulsory attendance and report submissions.
Expected time consumption: Lectures: 60 hours, Laboratory work: 35 hours. Exercises: 20 hours. Self-study:85 hours

Compulsory assignments

  • Therory Exercises
  • Laboratory work

Further on evaluation

All compulsory work requirements (exercises, laboratory work) must be approved to take the final written exam. Information about the requirement for the number of approved practitioners is given at the beginning of the semester. Final grade in the course is calculated from grade on work (demonstration of proficiency in the laboratory, counts 30%) and final written exam (counts 70%). Both parts must be passed to pass the course. In case of postponed examination (continuation examination), written examination may be changed to oral examination. When repeating the course because the students have not passed the course, you must re-pass the unpublished section. Demonstration of skill can only make the next batch of topic available. If the grade is improved, only the final written examination can be re-admitted, and the assessment of laboratory work remains pending. include credits for overlapping courses.
