The course encompasses classical qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis and introduction into instrumental analytical techniques. Systematic approach to chemical analysis from sampling to analytical information; errors in chemical analysis; statistical data evaluation; gravimetric methods of analysis (precipitate and reagent properties); chemistry of aqueous solutions and chemical equlibria (acids, bases, salts, complexes, buffers); expression of solution composition; titrimetric methods of analysis (titration curves, standard solutions, indicators); acid-base titrations; precipitation titrations (argentometry); complexometric titrations; oxidation-reduction titrations (electrochemical cell, electrode potentials); potentiometry (referent and indicator electrodes, measurement procedures); basic concepts and principles of instrumental analytical methods; atomic spectroscopy (absorption, emission); molecular spectroscopy (UV/Vis, IR, fluorescence); chromatography (gas, liquid; applications).
