Analytic chemistry II with lab

A.Y. 2020/2021
Overall hours
Learning objectives
Instrumentations and fundamentals of main analytical and separation techniques. Qualitative and quantitative problem solving.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will be able to solve qualitative and quantitative analytical problems with the most suitable technique. He will develop the expertise to characterize simple organic structure from the corresponding IR, NMR and MS spectra.
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Lesson period
First semester
Lectures and exercises will be held on the Zoom platform, will be in synchronous mode based on the timetable and can also be followed asynchronously because they are recorded and left available to students.
Prerequisites for admission
Fundamentals of General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry I
Assessment methods and Criteria
-The exam will be constitute by:
- Written test of 5 questions/exercises based on exercises and laboratory experiments
- Written test divided into two parts:
o 6 questions of short solution which, only if correctly solved, allow to pass to the second part
o 5 questions on theory and spectra interpretation
The two tests will be held in different day but they will be assessed with a single mark.
