OVERVIEW

The unit is aimed at introducing the students to the modern analytical chemistry, providing basic theoretical and operational information on instrumental analysis by spectroscopy, electrochemistry, chromatography and mass spectrometry techniques.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Basic theoretical knowledge of the main spectroscopic, electrochemical, chromatographic, mass spectrometric and electrophoretic techniques. Practical knowledge of sample preparation and analysis using these instrumental techniques. Development of the ability to conduct an analytical method, carry out experiments in teams and write reports on the results obtained.

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of three parts: laboratory (multiple choice quizzes and individual reports), written and oral exam, which will allow to evaluate the achievement of all the educational aims.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Evaluation is based on questionnaires and individual reports relating to laboratory experiments, written test and oral examination. In particular, for each laboratory experience, the student is asked to participate to a preparatory quiz and to prepare a short report containing data processing and the analytical results. Each quiz consists of 10 multiple-choice questions and it is passed when all answers are correct. Attempts are unlimited. A laboratory score is then assigned to each student on the base of the quiz accomplishment and of the quality of the report (correctness of data processing and presentation, accuracy of the results). The written test lasts 1.5 hours and it is composed by some exercises, aimed at assessing the individual skills to process analytical data and calculate the figures of merit of an analytical procedure. At each exercise a score is assigned according to its difficulty. A minimum score of 18/30 is required to access the oral test. The oral examination, performed by two professors and about 40-min long, is aimed to assess the knowledge of the theoretical content of the unit. During the examination, the commission evaluates if the educational aims have been achieved. If not, the student is asked to study more thoroughly and/or take benefit from further explanations by teachers. The final grade is obtained from the weighted average of the laboratory vote and the written examination and oral assessments. The relative weight of the three assessments takes into account the number of credits of each part of the unit on which assessments are based (25% laboratory; 25% written exam 50% oral). Rules on the written test: (a) the score is valid for three consecutive exam sessions; (b) in the case of double failure of the oral exam, the written test must be repeated; (c) the delivering of a new written test automatically cancels the previous score.
