Course belongs to Chemistry and Molecular Science Master Program.

Course is compulsory in the analysis and separation methods module.

Master level course available also to students from other degree programmes.

Course on Instrumental analysis is preferred.

  • Sampling and sample preparation
  • Mass spectrometry
  • Electromigration techniques
  • Portable analytical instruments and sensors
  • Analytical chemistry laboratory works

Student will know:

  • The basic theory of chromatography
  • Band broadening effects in separations
  • The basic principle of gas chromatography, supercritical chromatography and different liquid chromatographic techniques
  • Different parameters affecting the separations
  • Selection of optimum parameters for successful separations
  • Selection of column (dimensions, stationary phase) for separations with high separation efficiency
  • Detection possibilities
  • Application areas

First year of the master’s studies.

The autumn term, Period I.

The course provides an introduction to modern gas, liquid and supercritical chromatography. The scope of the course is to provide insight into the chromatographic theory with special emphasis on the determination and use of different parameters in chromatography, and especially on an understanding of these parameters in optimal chromatographic separations. The instrumental part will comprise injection techniques, column characteristics and selection, and different detection systems. The course will challenge students to perform chemical analyses on a variety of samples that may be considered as evidence. Student presentations and a laboratory demonstration will hopefully help students to adopt the information given in the course. The practical demonstrations related to the course will be instructed in the separate analytical chemistry laboratory work course.

Electronically available book chapters on the topic are given to the students.

Lectures, presentations, demonstration, exercises and student's independent learning.

Scale 0-5, Exam 100%
