Learning outcomes This course aims to provide general basic knowledge of the theoretical fundaments, instrumentation and applications of instrumental methods. At the end of this course, students should be able to:
Know the basic principles, instrumentation and applications of UV-vis and IR molecular spectrophotometry,NMR, atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy, electroanalytical and chromatographic methods.
Assess the benefits and limitations of different instrumental methods.
Select an appropriate instrumental method to solve a particular problem in a case study, based on theoretical knowledge and using scientific literature as a resource.
Critically interpret, explain and express accurately the analytical results.
Describe and use basic analytical methods validation procedures.
