Course description

Identification and determination of organic micro pollutants is crucial in the monitoring and assessment of the environment. Separation science provides indispensable tools in this field. The course can be completed by solving different tasks individually or in small groups. During the semester students also get the opportunity to learn about the solutions of their mates. The subject of the offered tasks fall into the following main topics: Fields of separation science, chromatographic and non-chromatographic methods (ultracentrifugation, electrophoresis…), theories of chromatography, liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, supercritical fluid chromatography, validation of chromatographic methods, sample preparation techniques. Theoretical and practical tasks are both offered for all topics.
