This course covers basic laboratory training and is designed for students of „Chemistry in Science“, „Teaching of Chemistry“, and „Biology“. The course puts the laboratory experience of the students gained at secondary school to an equal level and gets them ready for all following laboratory trainings. After absolving of the course, the students have the basic skills including handling the most frequently used laboratory equipments (pH-meter, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, vacuum rotary evaporator) and have the necessary information about safety rules as well as about writing laboratory diaries. The training is organized in blocks of four hours a week. The students work in groups of two according to a firm schedule so that each group absolve the complete set of (all) 10 exercises during semester. In the exercises, measurements of properties of unknown samples, basic synthetic and purification operations and basic methods of analyses are involved.
Knowledge of chemistry on the level of graduate from a secondary grammar school.
