Course objectives
Aim of the course is an enhancement of knowledges acquired in course C6110, Environmental Analytical Chemistry. Part engaged in organic contaminants (A. Hrdlička) deals mainly with contemporary techniques of sample preparation and with techniques hyphenating high performance separation with specific detection. Treatment of environmental samples with various matrices is discussed. In the part on inorganic contaminants (J. Komárek) requirements for trace inorganic analysis are introduced and, further, flow injection analysis, speciation of elements by electrochemical methods and by gas chromatography, applications of liquid chromatography and other techniques are discussed.
