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

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.

Evaluation methods

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.

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 can be organised on a selected experiment in the lab.
