Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give fundamental theoretical, practical and instrumental knowledge in the field of atomic and molecular spectrometry and electroanalytical chemistry. After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • Give an account of basic concepts within the area of spectrometry and electroanalytical chemistry.
  • Describe the principles and construction of spectrometric and electroanalytical instruments.
  • Explain the chemical principles of spectrometric and electroanalytical methods.
  • Interpret and qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate data obtained from spectrometric and electroanalytical analyses.

Course content

Molecular UV/VIS spectrometry: absorption and luminescence. Atomic absorption and emission spectrometry (AAS and ICP techniques). Mass spectrometry. Electroanalytical chemistry: fundamentals of electrochemistry, ion-selective electrodes and potentiometry, coulometry, voltammetry. Potentiometric titration. Calibration methods.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, laborations and short written tests. The laborations are compulsory.
