Course objectives
A systematic training of "classical" analytical chemistry for students of chemistry. The course includes qualitative analysis, gravimetric analysis, and titrimetry. On the base of acquired knowledge and solving problem task in exercise, student is able to propose possible solutions of analogous problems in practice.
Learning outcomes
Student is systematically trained in "classical" analytical chemistry for students of chemistry (e.g. qualitative analysis, gravimetric analysis, and titrimetry). Student is able to solve problem tasks in exercise and then to propose possible solutions of analogous problems in practice.
