Course objectives
Instrumental methods of structural analysis are part of analytical chemistry with a special focus on methods of detection and identification of synthetic and natural substances. Due to the currently used instrumental methods, it is concentrated on HPLC and CE technique, photometry, NMR and MS. The aim is to gain an overview of the instrumental techniques of analytical chemistry used in pharmacy, including sample preparation, which is often very important.
Learning outcomes
Specialized analytical chemistry
  • Analytical chemistry for graduate students is focused on instrumental methods of analytical detection of low-molecular compounds and its dentification, clasical chemical reactions are included with respect to sample preparation. The subject is focused on both the separation and detection of different compounds from various matrices. Regarding the current state of knowledge, it is focused on HPLC and CE, spectrophotometry, and other separation and identification methods.
    The course is done using self-studies, personal communication, and consultations with the lecturer, according to the specific demands of a student.
