Course content
Introduction to instrumental analytical methods. Selected optical methods - spectral (emission and absorption), non-spectral (refractometry, polarimetry). Electromagnetic spectrum and basic laws of absorption and emission of irradiation. Introduction to mass spectrometry. Selected electroanalytical methods (potentiometry, conductometry, coulometry, polarography and modern voltammetric methods). Selected separation methods (separation, chromatography, electromigration methods). Seminar: practicing and deepening of mentioned topics. Composition and preparation of solution. Gravimetric and titrimetric stoichiometry. Acid-base, complexometric, oxidation-reduction, and precipitation equilibria, calculation of corresponding quantities, calculation of titration curves and concentration of compounds in different points of titration. Examples from instrumental methods.

Learning outcomes
To provide students with basic knowledge of selected instrumental methods used in analytical chemistry.
To describe main approaches applied in instrumental analytical chemistry, to suggest suitable analytical procedures for a given analytical task. To be familiar with data that can be obtained by studied instrumental methods.
The knowledge of basics of general, organic, anorganic, physical and analytical chemistry is recommended.

Assessment methods and criteria
Written exam

Student has to pass the written test, to reach 60% points. Knowledge of topics of the subject ACH/AC1 is presupposed. Grasp of practical laboratory tasks (the subject ACH/ACC) is presupposed too. The attendance in seminar is obligatory.
