Last update: Mgr. Michaela Fridrichová, Ph.D. (29.09.2021)
It is a basic practicum which unify and extends laboratory skills obtained during high-school studies. It prepares students for further laboratory works. After passing the practicum students are able to perform basic laboratory works and can operate common laboratory instruments (pH-meter, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, vacuum rotary evaporator), they are familiar with safety of work in the laboratory and they know how to treat data and write laboratory diary and protocols. Practicum takes place once a week in block of four teaching hours; students work in pair according to time schedule in such a way, that they pass all 10 tasks during semester. Tasks include measurements of properties of unknown samples, synthetic and purification operations, and simple analytical procedures.
