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 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 reactions 
  • perform relevant statistical calculations and select 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 an electronic 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 professionally reasoned and coherent way
  • use relevant software to present, analyze and visualize theories, hypotheses and data in writing as well as orally
  • 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 for chemical analysis of a given product or process, taking economic and temporal factors into account
  • handle the planning, implementation and management of a problem based 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
