Course content
Content of practicals: The laboratory module is designed as an introduction to widely used chemical instrumental techniques such as: spectrophotometry in UV and VIS region, electrochemical techniques (potentiometry and conductometry), separation techniques (chromatography and dialysis). A detailed instruction manual is available to provide assistance in carrying out the experiments.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monitoring, Demonstration, Skills training, Laboratory, Individual tutoring
  • Class attendance - 42 hours per semester
  • Preparation for classes - 40 hours per semester
  • Preparation for credit - 20 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is mastering the basic instrumental techniques used in chemical as well as biological laboratories. The course also includes practicing in production of final laboratory reports of high quality.
Students master basic laboratory (mostly instrumental) techniques used in chemical and biological laboratories e.g.: - spectrophotometry - measurement of absorption spectra, construction of calibration curve, determination of the concentration of an unknown sample - potentiometry - potentiometric titration, determination of dissociation constants - conductivity measurement - dialysis - chromatography - refraktometry - liquid-liquid extraction Student are able to prepare final laboratory reports of high quality both from technical as well as graphical aspect
Prerequisites
