Learning objectives
The course, which includes individual laboratory training, gives the student the first opportunity to understand the main methods and the basis of the practical experimental chemistry. In this perspective, the qualitative analytical chemistry theory applied to the analysis of the medicinally and toxicologically relevant inorganic substances, is explained in the classroom (didactic unit of Inorganic Analysis of Substances Having Pharmaceutical Interest) and than it's put into practice in the laboratory (didactic unit of Qualitative Analysis Laboratory). In this way, the student has the opportunity to apply the theoretical basic arguments introduced by the Analytical Chemistry course, executing many of the identification reactions prescribed by Italian and European pharmacopeias.
