The present optional course is dedicated to deepening the theoretical and applicative fundaments of a number of spectroscopic techniques, relevant for analytical chemistry, which are not studied in detail in the basic, characterising and integrative institutional teachings. In particular, the following techniques will be studied: near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, ultraviolet (UV) and fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) and spectroscopic imaging.
At the end of the course, the student will be able to:
- describe the theoretical foundations of the spectroscopic techniques under study: near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, ultraviolet (UV) and fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), spectroscopic imaging;
- illustrate the applications of the aforementioned spectroscopic techniques to cases of high analytical interest;
- describe the work procedures to be implemented in an analytical spectroscopy laboratory.
Basic knowledge on electronic and vibrational analytical spectroscopy, acquired in the basic institutional, characterising and integrative teachings.
The lessons of the course will take place in frontal mode: the teachers, with the help of multimedia presentations (including graphic and video material), will illustrate the contents of the course.
Depending on the health situation and the University regulations, the teaching activity can be carried out remotely with the help of MS-Teams. The program of the course and the teaching methods will not be subject to changes, with the exception of the practical laboratory experience.
Theoretical foundations and application principles of the following spectroscopic techniques:
- near infrared spectroscopy (NIR)
- Raman spectroscopy
- ultraviolet (UV) and fluorescence spectroscopy
- X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF)
- spectroscopic imaging.
Development of work procedures to be implemented in an analytical spectroscopy laboratory.
Use of techniques in various application sectors (pharmaceutical, food, environmental, forensic, cultural heritage).
The material provided by the teachers, in the form of multimedia presentations, contains all the information necessary for the study of the subject as well as for passing the exam. The material, updated with each edition of the course, can be downloaded in .pdf format from the course website for the academic year of reference, on the AulaWeb platform.
Office hours: Reception: At the Chemistry and Pharmaceutical and Food Technologies Section of the Department of Pharmacy - DIFAR (Viale Cembrano, 4) or online via MS-Teams, by appointment with the teacher, to be agreed via e-mail (paolo.oliveri@unige. it).

All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam will consist in the oral presentation of a case study from the scientific literature relating to the application of advanced spectroscopic methods in fields of analytical interest.
After the presentation, teachers will conduct an in-depth interview on more theoretical aspects addressed during teaching.
The presentation will last between 15 and 20 minutes, followed by 1-3 in-depth questions.
During the presentation of the case study, teachers will evaluate the degree of understanding and deepening of the issues addressed, as well as the clarity of presentation and the use of an appropriate vocabulary.
In-depth questions are considered fundamental for passing the exam.
