Exercises in analytical chemistry
Note from June 29, 2020
Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.

The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Main themes
A series of practical exercises on titration methods, gravimetry, potentiometric analysis, chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques are proposed. The student should rely on his Analytical chemistry I course and on the available literature in order to select the most appropriate reactants as well as to define relevant operating modes.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 - To favour the understanding of Analytical chemistry I course - To familiarize the student with the theory-experience relationship - To train the student to a professional behaviour in a chemistry laboratory - To give the student an initiative spirit for practical manipulations

The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
Laboratories on titrimetry, gravimetry, potentiometry, chromatograpy, spectroscopies.
Teaching methods
Evaluation methods
Evaluation on the quality of experimental results (/5), reports given during classes (/5), laboratory note book maintenance (/5), tests at the beginning of the labs (/5).
A global evaluation could be organised on a selected experiment in the lab, depending on the number of students.
