Mode of study

Not applicable.

Entry knowledge

Knowledge from courses Common and Inorganic Chemistry, Organic chemistry, Physical chemistry, Analytical chemistry I, Analytical Chemistry II

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

Student assessment takes the form of an oral examination in the range of themes discussed in the lectures. Assessed is the knowledge of the theoretical basis of the general analytical procedures and methods and student's ability of creative solution of discussed analytical problem.
Attendance at lectures is recommended, but not checked.


The aim of the course is to acquaint students with methods and procedures used in analytical practice, from analytical sample collection through its processing to final analysis. The methods of organic and anorganic analysis used in environmental control and protection as well as in the field of security will be also presented.
Successful completion of the course will increase students knowledge, skills and competencies in the following areas:
1. Detailed knowledge of the complete analytical procedures used in routine analytical practice, consisting of an analytical sample collection, laboratory processing and the final analysis.
2. Ability to design an optimal procedure for the analysis of a contaminant (or group of contaminants) in the environmental compartment, taking into account the specific conditions of the solved problem.
