Learning objectives
Acquisition of basic knowledge on the theoretical foundations and applications of the principal techniques of instrumental chemical analysis, spectroscopic and chromatographic, for elementary analysis and molecular level.
Expected learning outcomes

Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Responsible
Lesson period
Second semester
More specific information on the delivery mode of training activities for academic year 2021/22 will be provided over the coming months, based on the evolution of the public health situation.
Prerequisites for admission
Knowledge of the fundamentals of general and analytical chemistry is required. Knowledge of the basic principles of optics and electromagnetism can be useful.
Assessment methods and Criteria
The exam is divided into two written tests, one for each module.
For the Analytical Chemistry II module there is a questionnaire with 6 open-ended but short questions concerning the theoretical and applicative aspects of the analytical techniques covered in the course. The exam lasts 45 minutes. The final mark of this module will be decided on the basis of the coherence of the answers with each specific question.
For the Analytical Chemistry II Laboratory module there is a questionnaire of 6 open questions concerning, also in this case, the theoretical and applicative aspects of the analytical techniques covered in the course; the exam duration is one hour. For the final result, evaluations of laboratory practice reports will also be considered.
The results for each module, expressed in a scale from 1 to 30, are communicated on the corresponding Ariel sites. The final mark, expressed in a scale from 1 to 30, is communicated by means of the electronic service Vweb.
Analytical chemistry II
Course syllabus
Choice criteria of an analytical method. Introduction to spectroscopic techniques. Methods for elemental analysis: optical atomic spectroscopy, atomic mass spectrometry. Methods for molecular analysis: IR and Raman vibrational spectroscopies, UV-visible absorption and luminescence spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, molecular mass spectrometry also combined with chromatographic techniques.
Teaching methods
The Analytical Chemistry II module is based on frontal lectures.

Teaching Resources
The reference textbook is: D. A. Skoog, F. J. Holler, S. R. Crouch, Chimica Analitica Strumentale, EdiSES. A detailed list of the sections where each subject of the module can be found in the textbook is reported on the web page of the module itself, together with some complementary slides.
Laboratory of analytical chemistry II
Course syllabus
Theoretical lessons- 3 CFU:
First part: processing of analytical data; Type of data-related errors; Accuracy and precision; Standard deviation, RSD and confidence limits; Calibration methods (construction of the calibration line and method of standard additions); t and F tests; Validation of an analytical method; Sensitivity; Definitions of LOD and LOQ; Control cards; Methods for sample preparation: acid dissolution, digestion and mineralizing in microwave oven, extraction using SPE and SPME techniques; Comparison and choice of a method.
Second part: Classification of chromatographic methods and general principles of chromatographic techniques, gas chromatography (GC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS).

Practice exercises- 3 CFU: quantitative analysis by the instrumental techniques described in the lessons; elemental analysis techniques (AAS, AES and ICP-OES), molecular spectoscopic techniques (UV-Vis, fluorimetry, FT-IR) e chromatographic methods (GC, GC-MS, HPLC and IC).
Teaching methods
The Analytical Chemistry II Laboratory module is based on lectures and laboratory practice exercises. The attendance at the laboratory activities is compulsory.
