Annotation -
This course covers basic laboratory training and is designed for students of "Chemistry in Science", "Teaching of Chemistry", and "Biology". The training proceeds during winter semester and the subject is endowed by 6 credits. The subject is identical with C240C40; only difference is that the training of this course proceeds during summer semester. The course puts the laboratory experience of the students gained at secondary school to an equal level and gets them ready for all following laboratory trainings. After absolving of the course, the students have the basic skills including handling the most frequently used laboratory equipments (pH-meter, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, vacuum rotary evaporator) and have the necessary information about safety rules as well as about writing laboratory diaries. The training is organized in blocks of four hours a week. The students work in groups of two according to a firm schedule so that each group absolve the complete set of (all) 10 exercises during semester. In the exercises, measurements of properties of unknown samples, basic synthetic and purification operations and basic methods of analyses are involved.
