AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Basic knowledge of equilibria and of classical analytical procedures based on volumetric  techniques. Development  of  chemical laboratory work skills and of computing and presenting experimental data.

TEACHING METHODS

Attendance to lessons its not compulsory, but highly recommended. Attendance to practice exercises is compulsory, as well as those lessons where operative details of practice exercises will be illustrated. At the beginning of the course, the dates of these particular lessons will be notified. A special session will be planned to make up missed practice exercises.  

 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Chemical equilibria: acid-base, complexometric, redox and precipitation equilibria. 

Volumetric analysis: basics, titration curves, indicators. Acid-base, complexometric, redox and  precipitation titrations.

Statistical evaluation of chemical data: random and systematic errors, accuracy and precision, standard deviation, confidence interval, signficance tests.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The students who want to be submitted to the exam must registrate at least two days in advance on https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione.

The exam will be oral and will involve questions both on theory and on practice exercises. During the oral exam the student must demonstrate the achievment of the learning outcomes, both orally and writing formulas, chemical reactions, graphs and short exercises regarding topics of the course.

When the commission will judge that the learning oucomes have not been reached, the students will be invited to repeat the exam in one of the subsequent dates.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The oral exam is always carried out by two teachers with several years of experience and will last 50-60 minutes. The topics are specified in the detailed syllabus publicated on the "aulaweb" service, together with other material (slides, exercises) considered useful. The exam is carried out in order to evaluate not only if  students have achieved the required knowledge, but even if they thoroughly understood them and if they are able to apply them to analytical problems. Being a theoretical and practical course, the commission evaluates also the behaviour of the students during practice exercises, if they are able to carry out analytical procedures in a correct way and to elaborate and present obtained data in written reports. 

Therefore, the commission is definitely able to verify with high accuracy if the student has reached or not the learning outcomes.

When the commission will judge that the learning oucomes have not been reached, the students will be invited to repeat the exam in one of the subsequent dates.
