Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal is to acquire a view of basic methods of chemical analysis.

Teaching methods



The subject give a view of methods of chemical analysis of materials. Attention will be particularly devoted, besides the common fundamentals of analytical chemistry and basic methods, on instrumental methods. Students will be acquainted with the basics of spectroscopic, electrochemical and separation methods. Attention will be devoted on applications for chemical composition analysis of materials.
