Unterrichts-/ Lehrsprachen


Based on courses in analytical chemistry, modern methods will be presented and discussed. The focus lies on the analytical techniques operated in the laboratories of the Institute of Analytical Chemistry, namely elemental mass spectrometric methods (ICP-MS) and separation methods coupled to molecular mass spectrometry (GC-MS, LC-MS). Additional contents tackle the topics of validation, sample preparation, automation and data evaluation, for both targeted and non-targeted approaches.
The theoretical part of the course will cover all topics. The laboratories are visited to meet the instruments in a live practical course (21st to 25th of June).
Students will be evaluated based on a presentation of a selected topic related to the above programme.

1. Metrology in Chemistry: Validation of analytical results, calculation of measurement uncertainty results, accreditation, ISO107025.
2. Hyphenated separation technologies I: LC-MS and mobility separations
4. Hyphenated separation technologies II: GC-MS including derivatization strategies
5. Data acquisition, processing and identity confirmation strategies in mass spectrometry
6. Microfluidics for automation and sample preparation
7. Lab facility tour
8. Elemental mass spectrometry I: Work in analytical (and clean-room) laboratories
9. Elemental mass spectrometry II: Modern analytical techniques for elemental analysis
10. Elemental mass spectrometry III: Analysis of isotope ratios using multi collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC ICP-MS)
