Introduction, classification of instrumental analytical methods, principles and applications.
MOLECULAR SPECTROSCOPY: UV-Vis spectrometry (measurement of transmittance and absorbance, Beer s law, instruments, quantitative analysis, photometric titrations); luminescence spectrometry (theory of fluorescence and phosphorescence, instruments, applications); IR and Raman spectroscopy (theory of infrared and Raman spectroscopy, instruments, applications); NMR SPECTROSCOPY (NMR spectrometers, application of 1H and 13C NMR, two-dimensional NMR);
MASS SPECTROMETRY (mass spectra, ion sources, mass analyzers, applications),
POTENTIOMETRY (reference and ion-selective electrodes, ion-selective electrodes, direct potentiometric measurements, application),
CHROMATOGRAPHY (principles, classification of chromatographic methods); gas chromatography (instruments, applications); liquid chromatography (instruments, applications);
HYPHENATED TECHNIQUES (GC-MS, LC-MS, GC-IR, LC-IR).
