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 (Drug Analysis module) and than it's put into practice in the laboratory (Laboratory of Drug Analysis module). In this way, the student has the opportunity to apply the theoretical basic arguments introduced by the Analytical Chemistry module, executing many of the identification reactions prescribed by Italian and European pharmacopeias.

Program description
- Introduction to the inorganic qualitative analysis.
- Safety guidelines in chemistry laboratory and hazard prevention.
- Basic laboratory procedures.
- Theoretical aspects of the dissolution and precipitation processes.
- Salt hydrolysis: acid/base properties of anions, cations and salts.
- Analysis of anions.
- Analysis of cations (classical analysis by precipitation of six analytical groups).
- Identification methods for unknown inorganic compounds listed in the European Pharmacopoeia (water-soluble and water-insoluble substances).
- Limit tests: principles reported in F.U.
- Color theory: electronic properties-color relationships of ions and molecules.
- Introduction to the pharmaceutical, toxicological and biochemical properties of the inorganic compounds analyzed during the laboratory work.

Teaching organization
- The course takes place in the first year second semester. The students are expected to have a basic Inorganic Chemistry knowledge.
- The Drug Analysis module consists in lectures preparing the students to experimental laboratory training, which take place in the same time (3 CFU) .
- The Laboratory of Drug Analysis module consists in twelve individual obligatory laboratory sessions (3 CFU) .
- The final exam includes a laboratory evaluation (identification of unknown compounds) and a written test concerning the theoretical aspects of the qualitative analysis.
