Course objectives
An introductory course in the field of environmental analytical chemistry. Part dealing with inorganic pollutants (J. Komárek) is introducing the topic of GLP and, further, is mainly dedicated to the determination of inorganic pollutants in the environment. Sources of contamination, sampling techniques, sample treatment, and methods of determination are discussed. Analytical chemistry of organic pollutants (A. Hrdlička) is introduced by evaluation of the effects of transport and metabolization of pollutants on sample properties and by discussion of data quality in environmental analysis. Part on sampling and fundamental techniques of sample processing follows. Analytical chemistry of groups of common organic pollutants (PAHs, PCBs, OCPs, PCDDs/PCDFs, chlorophenols, VOCs) is discussed afterwards in details.
  • Part A: INORGANIC POLLUTANTS (by J. Komárek) A.I. Sample types, standards, reference materials. A.II. Water, air, soil, biota - pollutants, sampling, sample preparation, and determination of pollutants. Part B: ORGANIC POLLUTANTS(by A. Hrdlička) B.I. Transport, degradation, dispersion, and accumulation. Sampling strategy, general schema of analytical process. Principal terms of GLP. B.II. Sampling, Good Sampling Practice. Gaseous samples, water, analysis of solid particles. Sediments, soil and solid waste. Biota. B.III. Fundamental techniques for sample preparation. B.IV. Analytical chemistry of significant organic pollutants.
