AIMS AND CONTENT
The course aims to provide the basics of the analytical proess and of the methods in chemical analysis, considering the aspects related to sampling, sample preparation, classical and instrumental analysis.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
Learning of the basics of the analytical procedure and of the methods of chemical analysis, considering the different aspects, from sampling to analysis, with an in-depth study of the instrumental techniques of greatest interest in the environmental field.
The final objective of the course, together with the course of Environmental Chemistry Laboratory, is to teach the student the analytical approach, providing the tools to understand the problems related to a chemical analysis.
Fundamentals of Chemistry (first year course)
Class attendance is strongly recommended, even if not mandatory. The course consists of lectures in Italian during which students are encouraged to intervene with questions and personal considerations.
The slides of the lessons and any educational material for further information are published and made available on AULAWEB

TEACHERS AND EXAM BOARD
EMANUELE MAGI (President)
PAOLA FRANCESCA RIVARO (President Substitute)
MARIA CARMELA IANNI (Substitute)
The lessons of the first semester will start from September 27th, 2021. Refer to the detailed timetable below link: https://easyacademy.unige.it/portalestudenti/
Students wishing to take the exam must book at least two days in advance on: https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione
The exam is oral, has a duration of about 30 minutes and includes questions on subjects specified in the program that is illustrated to students and deposited on AulaWeb, together with the material shown in class and other in-depth material. The student will have to demonstrate the achievement of the educational objectives both by exposing the topics orally and by writing down possible chemical reactions, formulas, graphs and diagrams related to the questions. If the commission considers that these objectives have not been achieved, the student will be asked to withdraw.
The oral test is aimed at assessing the knowledge and understanding of the subject, based on the training objectives described above; the ability to link the various topics is evaluated.
The exam is always conducted by two tenured professors and is conducted in such a way as to evaluate not only if the student has acquired the required knowledge, but also if he has deeply understood the topics and if he is able to apply them to simple analytical problems.
Considering that at least one of the two professors has many years of teaching experience in the discipline, the commission is able to accurately verify the achievement of the educational objectives of teaching. If these are not reached, the student is invited to deepen the study and, if necessary, to ask further explanations to the teacher.
Regular attendance is recommended as it facilitates the understanding and implementation of the exercises planned in the course of Environmental Chemistry Laboratory.
