|Semester||Spring Semester 2016|
|Lecturers||E. C. Meister, R. Zenobi, M. Badertscher, M.‑O. Ebert, B. Hattendorf|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||German|
|Abstract||Practical introduction to important experimental methods in physical and analytical chemistry.|
|Objective||The students have to carry out selected experiments in physical chemistry and to evaluate measurement data.|
They acquire a good knowledge about the most important practical techniques in analytical chemistry.
Laboratory reports have to be written to each experiment.
|Content||Physical chemistry part:|
Short recapitulation of statistics and analysis of measurement data. Writing experimental reports with regard to publication of scientific works. Basic physical chemistry experiments (a maximum of six experiments form the following themes): 1. Phase diagrams (liquid-vapour and solid-liquid phase diagrams, cryoscopy); 2. electrochemistry and electronics; 3. data acquisition (LabVIEW); 4. kinetics; 5. thermochemistry; 6. speed of sound in gases.
Analytical chemistry part:
1. Introduction to the concept of sampling, quantitative elemental analysis and trace analysis, atomic spectroscopic methods, comparative measurements with electrochemical methods; 2. Separation methods, their principles and optimisation: comparison of the different chromatographic methods, effect of the stationary and mobile phases, common errors/artefacts, liquid chromatography, gas chromatography (injection methods). 3. Spectroscopic methods in organic structure determination: recording of IR and UV/VIS spectra, recording technique in NMR
Mandatory exercises in spectroscopy in an accompanying tutorial 529-0289-00 "Instrumentalanalyse organischer Verbindungen" are an integral part of this course.
