Annotation -
The following analytical methods are practiced in this course: electrochemical methods - anodic stripping voltammetry, conductometric titrations, and potentiometric titrations; separation methods - gas chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, and capillary zone electrophoresis; spectrometric methods - UV/VIS spectrophotometry, atomic absorption spectrometry and flow injection analysis with spectrophotometric detection.

The advanced laboratory course is scheduled 3 days a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. It is necessary to attend the course all 3 days a week.

After completing the course, the student for these instrumental analytical methods (polarography, anodic stripping voltammetry, conductometry and conductometric titration, potentiometric titration, atomic absorption and emission spectrometry, spectrophotometry, capillary electrophoresis, gas chromatography with flame ionization detection, liquid chromatography with UV/VIS detection):
- will explain the principle of the analytical methods listed above
- based on the instructions for the task, independently prepares solutions and uses instruments independently (performs measurements)
- interprets measured graphs and curves (polarographic and voltammetric curves, conductometric and potentiometric titration curves, absorption/emission spectra, electropherograms, chromatograms, calibration curves)
- describes and evaluates measured data, draws appropriate conclusions from them
- records the measurement procedure, results, and conclusions in a report

Requirements to the exam -

This laboratory course concludes with an examination. The exam will be awarded upon successful completion of all prescribed tasks and submission of all protocols. The protocols must be submitted within the specified deadline, i.e. within 14 calendar days of the end of the laboratory course. The final grade of the examination is determined by the classification of the oral examination of each task and the classification of the submitted protocols, taking into account the continuous work of the student during the laboratory course.
