    The goalThe objective of the course is that students master the necessary knowledge and skills to solve a specific analytical problem. An analysis of the trace of a compound in real samples is a complex analytical task, so a student must master the techniques of sampling, sample preparation, clean-up, preconcentration and determination of analytes by a suitable analytical technique.
    The outcomeThe students should develop the skill to choose a suitable analytical method, master the experimental technique of its utilization and to explain the problems that have emerged in their work. Also, through the public presentation of the seminar, students develop the ability to define the problem, present the solution and critically evaluate the results of their work.
    Contents of lecturesAn analysis of a compound or a related group of compounds in real samples involves the proper sampling procedure, sample preparation, clean-up, preconcentration, and determination by a suitable analytical method. The whole process depends on the type of sample and the physicochemical properties of the analyte, so this course should help students to solve a specific problem, through consultation with a teacher.
    Contents of exercisesPractical work with the chosen theme should include the selection criteria for the analytical procedure, the sampling, the sample preparation, clean-up and pre-concentration, the choice of the analytical method and its experimental application, actual results and a critical overview of their accuracy and reliability.
