On completion of the course the student shall be able to:
carry out for an analytical problem a relevant literature search
choose plan and perform a complete analysis procedure to answer analytical issues with relevance for today's research within analytical chemistry
evaluation of multivariate data
present received results orally in Swedish and/or English in the form of a mini-symposium
present received results in English in form of a scientific article and as a poster
carry out laboratory work in a scientific way with relevant documentation and risk and security assessment
Methodology and practical application of complete analytical procedures including advanced methods for: sampling, decomposition, extraction, fractionation, enrichment of components from composite samples, separation, final determination and evaluation of results. Analysis of variation in results from different sources with ANOVA. Evaluation of results with multivariate methods as PCA, PLS. Scientific literature in analytical chemistry.
The teaching is given as lectures, project-oriented laboratory work individually and in group, seminars, mini-symposium and eventually study visits. Course introduction, laboratory work, projects, seminars, mini-symposium and study visits are compulsory.
Examination is arranged during and/or at the end ot the course. For the course to be graded, it is required that the laboratory work has been presented and accepted. Laboratory work and projects are marked to 10 credits. The final grade corresponds to a weighed average of the results from the written examination, the laboratory work and projects.
