At the end of the course, the student should have acquired knowledge about the principles and analytical applications of the mass spectrometry-based techniques and methodologies.
In particular, the student should be able to:
- know and describe mass spectrometry potentialities for the development of qualitative and quantitative analytical methods
- know and describe the principles of ionization sources and mass analyzers
- know and describe the acquisition modes and signal elaboration strategies
- evaluate critically the own knowledges and capacities and interpret the obtained results
- connect each other the different topics addressed during the course and connect them with the basic and related disciplines; discuss critically the concepts and consult relevant scientific literature
- apply the acquired knowledge to identify the proper analytical approaches to face a certain analytical issue, considering analyte and matrix nature and investigation type (target or untarget)
- support the own activity on the basis of an autonomous judgment on issues pertinent to the course of study.
- easily retrieve information from scientific literature and databases.
- possess personal logical reasoning and autonomous learning skills, to independently propose solutions for new scientific topics and professional issues.
