Analytical methods I


Programme (detailed contents):


Four parts to understand and manage theoritical and experimental concepts relating to analysis methods.

Spectroscopies and Spectrophotometry ( UV visible : principles, theory Beer Lambert’s Law. IR and Mass Spectroscopies : principles, instrumentation)

Electrochimie (Conductimetry, probes,).

Chromatography (gas and liquid : theory, instrumentation and quantification methods)



Lectures (22.75h) / Tutorials (16.25 h) / Labworks (21h TP)



Main difficulties for students:

Links between theoretical aspects (physical concepts) and the analytical technique which depends on them

Integrated vision


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):


the principles of analytical techniques implemented currently in laboratories and the associated mechanisms from quantum physics, chemistry principles …)



The student will be able to:


AA1 Choose the most relevant technique regarding the problem by explaining the relating theoretical concepts.

AA2 Carry out these analytical techniques

AA3 Analyse and discuss the results in a critical way

Needed prerequisite

Thermodynamics, chemistry, ondulatory optics, physics

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
