The course aims to provide students with a thorough knowledge of major
instrumental analytical techniques, including spectroscopic techniques,
separation and hyphenated techniques.
A critical discussion of equipments, procedures and
interpretation of test results in the fiels of biotechnologies is emphasised.
It intends to supply the concepts and abilities that allow the understanding and explanation of the basic principles of analytical chemistry and its importance in biotechnology.
At the end of the course the student is expected to be able to:
- know the fundamental principles of the instrumental analysis methods including the classification of the instrumental analytical techniques and the corresponding selection criteria
- apply the major analytical chemistry techniques
- verbally express the concepts and contents learned
- acquire and use tools to help student learn how to learn, with additional materials for further information
- undertake academic studies of a higher level with a sufficient degree of autonomy.
