Analysis of Chemical Systems


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


Students who have passed the module should be able to

  • Explain the fundamental physical principles that underlie the chemical analysis apparatus used in the project
  • Explain the fundamental physical principles underlying alternatives to the selected instrumental chemical analysis techniques
  • Explain the chemistry that underlies sample preparation to the instrumental chemical analysis techniques that are selected above
  • Describe standard statistical methods used in analytical chemistry


  • Perform relevant stoichiometric calculations and use ordinary glassware in the laboratory
  • Perform analytical chemical experiments in accordance with the regulatory and achieve a reproducible result
  • Write down and reconcile all chemical reaction schemes that underlie the analysis regulatory
  • Calculate the thermodynamic affinity for the reactions used in the basis of the analysis
  • Perform the relevant statistical calculations on the results and select one of the analytical methods for validation
  • Perform general uncertainty calculations on the results obtained
  • Explain safety rules and phrases for the analysis and the chemicals used
  • Write a project report following the standards of the field of study, include relevant literature, use the correct terminology¬†and communicate the problem and results in writing, graphically and orally in a coherent way
  • Justify the choice of methods, models and other tools used in the project and asses the problem of the project and results in relevant professional contexts


  • Select the best possible analytical equipment in the laboratory for a chemical analysis of a given product or a process, taking economic and temporal factors into account
  • Handle the planning, implementation and management of a project and handle complex and development-oriented tasks during the project work and contribute to the project group's work and results
  • Identify own learning needs for continued development and education in the field of study
