Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main goal of the subject is obtaining the knowledge about analytical methods to be used in the analysis of some raw materials and products (steels, iron and nonferrous metals, or their alloys) and wastes.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs
Project work


The subject is focused on deepening of knowledge in the field of material characterization (raw materials, products and wastes) occurring in metallurgical complex. The subject content is divided into methods providing information on the content of both elements and organic compounds. Paid attention is to methods of processing results as well.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Oral examination.


Other requirements

Write a seminar work. Topic of the seminar work is defined by guarantor related to experimental work in the laboratory. Topic will be based on the orientation of dissertation and will be selected together with the supervisor.


Subject has no prerequisities.


Subject has no co-requisities.

Subject syllabus:

The course is focused on the following issues: 1. Physical and chemical methods of sample preparation. The use of separation techniques. 2. Application of atomic fluorescence spectroscopy, procedures and interpretation of results. 3. Methods for atomic absorption spectroscopy in relation to the determination of trace concentrations of particular analytes in iron matrices, steel and iron alloys and nonferrous metals. 4. Advantages, disadvantages of atomic emission spectroscopy (inductively coupled plasma, spark, electric arc, glow discharge or laser). 5. Electrochemical methods of analysis and theirs using. 6. Procedures for determination of non-metallic elements such as sulphur, carbon, oxygen, etc. 7. The determination of organic pollutants pyrometallurgic´s products by chromatographic methods, including sample preparation. 8. Foundations of chemometry for quality assurance of analytical results. Exercise content: Practical applications of individual methods in the determination of selected analytes. The choice of methods can be focused on the content of the topic of dissertation theses.
