Course objectives
Analytical Chemistry for DSP Pharmacognosy is a branch of analytical chemistry, with a special focus on the methods of separation of natural substances, their detection, and identification. In the frame of the currently used methods, it concentrates on HPLC and CE techniques, spectrophotometry at different wavelengths, and other detection and identification methods. The objective of the course in terms of learning outcomes and competencies is to acquaint students with selected analytical techniques, to bring students closer to the possibilities of analytical chemistry, and to enable control of techniques useful for further study and analytical work within the DSP.
