This course is in at least 1 assigned curriculum part of the STEOP.

2020S, LU, 4.0h, 4.0EC, to be held in blocked form


  • Semester hours: 4.0
  • Credits: 4.0
  • Type: LU Laboratory Exercise

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand chemical reactions and chemical equilibra (acid/base, redox, precipitation and complexation) and to use these for the purpose of separating and identifying cations and anions in aqueous solutions.

Subject of course

Introduction to the cation separation scheme and the relevant identification reactions. Identification of cations and anions based on the cation separation scheme and individual ion tests exemplified by the analysis of soluble pure compounds, and multi-component mixtures of increasing complexity.

Teaching methods

Practical and independent work in the chemcial laboratory under supervision of assitants and tutors.

Mode of examination

Registration for the lab courses will remain open until four weeks before the start of each lab course. When registering, please make your choice for one of the two courses. It is not necessary to register additionally to the lab course. We will try to accommodate your wish. However, in view of filling all available lab places we reserve the right to move participants to the other lab course.

In case we recive more applications than lab places are available, then the folloowing criteria apply for the ranking:

1) The date of the exam that qualifies you to participate in this lab course, i.e. the lecture course 164.053 "Analytical Chemistry I"

2) The grade of the exam that qualifies you to participate in this lab course (the lecture course 164.053 "Analytical Chemistry I")

3) The successful participation in courses from the Study Programme Entry and Orientation Phase (STEOP)

4) In case of equal rank in all categories 1-3, then the date of registration for this lab course is taken as the fourth and decisive criterion.

For the inventory of the working place, a deposit of Euro 50 is required. This deposit will be returned aftr the end of th course provided the inventory has been returned copletely, in a dlean and functional state.
