Content

Seminars (part B): Overview of analytical chemistry - Physico-chemistry of electrolyte solutions  - Redox reactions and analytical applications - Membrane potential and potentiometric analytical methods  - Precipitation and equilibria, gravimetric analysis  - Acid-base reactions and analytical applications  - Volumetry and titrimetry.

Laboratory practice (part A and C): Volumetric and gravimetric analysis, direct and indirect potentiometric methods, use of analytical kits.

The program is designed in such a way that:

- It illustrates the course LBIR 1349

- It develops the critical mind towards quality of results (based on statistical tools acquired in other courses)

- It ensures the progressive acquisition of autonomy in the work: application and discussion of protocols, comparison of different analytical methods, adaptation of protocols.

- It allows the treatment of samples of particular interest for future bioengineers (soil samples, bio-industrial products)

First part: analysis of a limestone, analysis of animal food samples (full protocols given) - statistical treatment of the experimental data

Second part: integrated exercises: analysis of two systems chosen by the students (protocols must be adapted to each system) - comparison of methods - global balance - communication of results between students

 

Teaching methods

Resolution of exercises and discussion of concepts in group; feedback on laboratory reports

Laboratory practice, alone or in team of two or four students, and mentoring sessions to accompany planning of the work 

Evaluation methods

Continuous evaluation (laboratory notebook keeping, professional attitude in the laboratory, individual and group reports, intermediate tests).

Oral test mainly related to the integrated exercises at the end of the semester (25% of final grade)
