General informations:

The analytical chemistry laboratory practice consists of two separate parts: classical quantitative analysis and instrumental analysis.

That student can start the practice who has taken it in the Neptun, participates in the education of laboratory safety rules and the subsequent exercise.

Absence:

Attendance is compulsory at all of the sessionsof the laboratory practice. In case of absence you have to give to the instructor medical certificate. In exceptional case one missing is allowed, but the missed practice session must be replaced. Any absence must be indicated to the instructor (e-mail, phone) prior to lab session.

Short written test:

Each week the laboratory session begins with a short test which begins at 14:00 o’clock (not more than 20 minutes). Please, don’t late! The more you late the less time you have for the short test. The test is based on the exercises of that week and the previous week (calculations, theoretical background of the determinations, prevention of accidents and possible dangers of handling chemicals). Cell phone mustn’t be used during the short test for calculations!

Lab manual:

During the laboratory session all students have to write a lab manual which should contain the theoretical background of the determinations, the procedure and possible dangers of handling chemicals, all data of the measurements, calculations and conclusions.

Final grade:

Grading is based on three separate factors:

- the average grade of short test written at the beginning of the classical quantitative analysis lab sessions (an average of at least 2.0 is necessary to avoid a ‘fail’ final grade)

-  the average grade of unknown samples at the classical quantitative analysis lab sessions  (an average of at least 2.0 is necessary to avoid a ‘fail’ final grade)

- the average grade of instrumental analysis lab sessions  (an average of at least 2.0 is necessary to avoid a ‘fail’ final grade)

If one of the criterion is not fulfil, the final grade will be the fail and the student have to retake the course the next year.

Information of the classical analysis lab sessions:

- Lab coats and safety glasses must be worn throughout practice. We cannot give you extra lab coat and safety glasses, but without them it is not possible to take part in the lab practice.

- At the beginning of the lab after the short test there will be short demonstration where the instructors give the students some useful information in connection with that week exercises possible dangers of handling chemicals.

- During the laboratory work students have to carry out classical quantitative determinations. In each week unknown samples are provided for the students who must determine the amount of the solute in the unknown samples. Marks will be given for each determination.
