Prerequisites

Analytical Chemistry (in particular Analytical Chemistry - Chromatography), Organic Chemistry

Intended learning outcomes

To gain general and specific knowledge concerning the analysis of mainly low-molecular-weight organic compounds. The student will after the course cover many of the analytical techniques that are important within the field of chemical analysis. The student shall also be able to utilize scientific literature within the area. In order to achieve this it is necessary to:

  • Theoretically and practically cover gas chromatographic techniques
  • Theoretically and practically cover high performance liquid chromatographic techniques
  • Utilize mass spectrometry for the structural elucidation of unknown organic compounds
  • Treat samples before the final instrumental analysis
  • Develop analytical methods for trace element analysis, qualitatively as well as quantitatively
  • Be able to perform basic instrument maintenance

 

Course content

  • Mass spectrometry concerning the function of the spectrometer, the most common mass spectrometric techniques, manual and computerized interpretation of mass spectra and combinations of chromatographic separation techniques and mass spectrometry.
  • Chromatographic high resolution techniques. The development of analytical techniques in theory and practice. Trace element analysis regarding concentration, separation, identification and quantification

 

 

Teaching and working methods

Theory of mass spectrometry and chromatography are presented in lectures. In the laboratory the students use modern equipment for chemical separations and study their possibilities and limitations. Analytical methods for the analysis of organic compounds or consumption products are developed in groups of 2-3 students. The laboratory course takes place in dedicated area.

Examination

TEN1Written examinationU, 3, 4, 57 credits
LAB1Laboratory workU, G5 credits

LAB1 has the following compulsatory moments: All laborations with respective surveys, participation at educational visits. In case the student does not pass the laboratory course, the examinator will provide a complementary task since this is required for project course TFK119.

The examinations show in what respect the students fulfil the aims of the course. For passing, limitations regarding parts of the aims may be compensated by deeper knowledge of others.
