Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry
- Enrollement in the course requires an successful completion of the following courses:
- General Chemistry and Basic Laboratory Calculations (17PBLOZL)
- Department of Biomedical Technology
Purpose of this course is to introduce analytical chemistry, especially theoretical basis, categorization and review of methods. Practical work in laboratory empower students to develop practical skills in chemical labolatory.
Conditions of credit:
Obligatory and active attendance at all tutorials. Absences are acceptable for serious reasons only and must be apologized and recompensed. Student has to come in time. For each lab session working out a report in corresponding quality.
Grading test (including chemical nomenclature and chemical calculation) at least for 75%.
For the attendance at each lab session student has to pass an entrance test at least for 60 %. In the other way, he has to recompense the session with the test on an other date. An entrance test could contain the topics from the actual lecture and from the base and instructions for the labo session.
Examination conditions: Student has to pass a written test comprising the topics discussed during the lectures and tutorials, including assigned individual study. The exam is graded according to the ECTS scale, to pass the exam, the test must be evaluated at least at 50 %.
