General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Calculation tools for chemistry students

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of volumetric analysis (titrations). After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • Explain the chemical principles of volumetric analyses.
  • Plan, perform and evaluate chemical analyses based on titrations.
  • Write reaction equations and perform calculations for volumetric analyses.
  • Calculate and analyse titration curves.
  • Construct logaritmic pH diagrams and use these to describe acid-base titration equilibria.

Course content

General aspects of analytical chemistry. Acid-base equilibria and pH graphs (logarithmic diagrams). Quantitative chemical analysis based on volumetric methods: acid-base, redox, complexometric and precipitation titrations – theory and applied laborations where authentic samples are analysed. Titrations with indicators and potentiometric titrations. Experimental errors.

Teaching and working methods

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

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.
