Learning outcomes
The objective is to provide an overview of selected modern analytical methods used in natural sciences. These methods go beyond the basic analytical chemistry courses and represent a special addition to the other subjects. Special Analytical Methods contribute to the overall professional profiling of the doctoral student.
Students get an overview of selected modern analytical methods related to their professional profiling.
Prerequisites
Students should have successfully passed their basic chemistry examinations as part of their master's degree.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

Commanding of the basics of selected parts of analytical chemistry with respect to the necessary understanding of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry.
