Compulsory Module 9: Analytical Chemistry B (7 ECTS-Credits, 6 h)
Prerequisites for registration: positive evaluation of compulsory modules 4 and 6
Learning Outcome: The students are able to ¿ describe and compare different techniques of atomic spectroscopy, including their operation, detectors, monochromators, interferences and applications; ¿ explain and critically evaluate areas of application of atomic fluorescence spectroscopy and plasma, spark, arc and laser emission spectroscopy; ¿ know methods to troubleshoot atomic spectroscopy and select appropriate analytical methods for specific samples; ¿ understand, describe and distinguish the interaction of ionising radiation with matter and the different types of decay; ¿ explain different techniques of radioanalysis (alpha, beta and gamma spectroscopy, liquid scintillation) and evaluate their fields of application; ¿ know and describe technical applications of X-ray and electron spectroscopy and compare their advantages and disadvantages; ¿ perform basic analytical techniques such as volume measurement, weighing, precipitation, filtration, digestion and annealing and know and apply appropriate safety and quality control measures; ¿ carry out gravimetric and volumetric determinations including neutralisation and re-dimension analysis as well as complexometry and calculate, document and critically evaluate the results; ¿ apply instrumental analysis techniques such as photometry, pH measurement and conductivity measurement and evaluate the results statistically.
