Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To take up with instrumental methods in organic analysis. The main attention is paid to the separation and spectral methods and their use in the analysis of organic substances.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs
Project work


The subject is an extension of the subject in Inorganic Analysis and describe the structure of organic compounds, both in terms of theoretical, and practical (deepening of spectral and separation methods of instrumental structural analysis). In limited range it also deals with classic organic analysis of functional groups and their reactions.
