This course provides the basic principles of analytical chemistry necessary in all disciplines of chemistry. The subject matter includes principles of chemical analyses with emphasis on chemical equilibrium reactions; classical and instrumental analytical techniques; sampling, sample preparation, method validation and statistical treatment of data. These topics will provide the knowledge and skills for interdisciplinary applications of analytical chemistry. List of the topics are: Classification of analytical methods. Tools of analytical chemistry: terminology, apparatus, chemicals and statistics. Sampling and sample treatment. Data and data treatment: error, accuracy, precision, confidence intervals. Aqueous chemical equilibrium: acids, bases, buffer solutions, complex solutions. Classical methods of analysis: elemental, gravimetric and volumetric (neutralization, redox and complexometric titrations). Redox reactions and electrochemical
techniques. Spectroscopy fundamentals. Partition equilibria, separation techniques and chromatography.
