Systematic introduction to chemical analysis from sample design to analytical information. Errors in chemical analysis. Statistical data treatment and evaluation. Gravimetric methods (precipitates and reagents properties). Aqueous solution chemistry and chemical equilibria (acids, bases, salts, complex compounds). Expressing the chemical composition. Titrimetric methods (titration curves, standard solutions, indicators). Acid-base titrations. Precipitation titration (argentometry). Complexometric titrations. Oxidation-reduction titration (electrochemical cell, electrode potentials). Potentiometry (reference and indicator electrodes, potentiometric measurements). Fundamentals of instrumental analytical methods. Atomic spectroscopy (absorption, emission). Molecular spectroscopy (UV/Vis, IR, fluorescence). Chromatography (gas, liquid; application).
