Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Subject objectives: - to provide survey of classical analytical methods, - to describe principles of individual analytical methods, - to describe technique of sample preparation prior to analysis itself, - to use fundamental procedures of analytical calculations, - to perform analytical measurements in laboratory, - to assess practical possibilities of utilization of individual analytical methods (advantages and drawbacks). Acquired knowledge: - to characterize fundamental terms, variables and units used in analytical chemistry, - to define fundamental methods in analytical chemistry, - to characterize basic procedures of samples preparation prior to analysis itself, - to characterize principles, advantages and drawbacks of individual methods of classical analytical chemistry. Acquired skills: - capability to perform fundamental analytical calculations for classical analytical methods, - capability to perform practical analytical measurements in laboratory (using gravimetric and titration methods), - capability to chose suitable analytical method for derermination of given analyte.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Lectures of Classical Analytical Methods are focused to description of fundamental theory, principles, calculations, sample preparation and utilization of gravimetric and titrimetric analytical methods. Calculation of typical exercises is trained during calculation seminars; practical skills needed for analytical measurements are obtained during laboratory classes.
