Class at Faculty of Science |


1. Qualitative analysis of inorganic cations and anions using wet chemistry: identification of two cations, identification of two anions

2. Qualitative analysis of inorganic solid substance using wet chemistry: identification of cation and anion in a well-soluble and a bad-soluble solid sample

3. Acid-base titrations: identification of analyte (sodium or potassium hydroxide or hydrochloric, sulfuric or nitric acid) in the sample, preparation of a standard solution of hydrochloric acid or sodium hydroxide, acidimetry or alkalimetry of analyte in the sample

4. Precipitation titrations: argentometry of sodium chloride in a liquid sample with Fajans' indication, titration of potassium iodide and chloride in a solid sample using potentiometric indication, titration curve construction, and evaluation

5. Chelatometry: identification of analytes in the sample, determination of magnesium and calcium ions in water as a sample, titration of magnesium and zinc ions or lead and bismuth ions in the mixture

6. Iodometry: titration of ascorbic acid in Celaskon pellet, iodometry of acetone in a liquid sample based on indirect titration

7. Permanganometry: preparation of a standard solution of potassium permanganate using oxalic acid as the standard, titration of iron in a solid sample using potentiometric indication, titration curve construction, and evaluation

8. Coulometry: determination of hydroquinone in a liquid sample with coulometric titration, calculation of analyte concentration from the electrical charge

9. Potentiometry with ion-selective electrode: determination of nitrate or fluoride ions using ion-selective electrode, calibration curve construction

10. Gas chromatography: separation of oxygen and nitrogen from air sample, evaluation of chromatogram, and calculation of fundamental chromatographic quantities

11. Spectrophotometry: spectrophotometric determination of acetylsalicylic acid in Acylpyrin pellet, calibration curve construction

12. Solid phase extraction: preconcentration of iron ions from spring water using solid phase extraction, spectrophotometric determination of a preconcentrated analyte, calibration curve construction

13. Written test in theory and practical exam with real sample


The course of laboratory practice in analytical chemistry trains experimental skills in classical and instrumental analytical techniques. The course ends through a written test in calculations and a practical exam in analysis of unknown sample. The course is taught in English for Erasmus students.

During epidemiological measures: This subject is taught only in the face-to-face form if it is possible.
