Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main objective of lectures is to create a compact picture about modern analytical chemistry. Lectures are conceived so that students get an overview of general parts of analytical chemistry, which serves as a necessity to understand the laws of chemistry and reaction analysis and then is followed with an overview of various groups of practical activities, leading to the determination of the reference analyte.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs
Other activities


The aim of the course is to broaden and deepen knowledge of chemical laboratory techniques including gaining practical skills. The aim of the course is to deepen students' readiness to solve analytic problems by selected instrumental methods. Provide an overview of selected analytical methods and procedures used to analyze real environmental samples and chemometric evaluation of analytical results.
