commonly used laboratories


In the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, students learn to undertake chemical work in the laboratory, carry out experiments according to predefined tasks and record their work.

They perform experiments independently on the topics of titration (acid, precipitation, redox, complexometry), potentiometry, electrogravimetry, solubility product, photometry, AAS, qualitative analysis of cations and anions, production of preparations.

The practical work aims to familiarise students with various important analytical methods in practice, while at the same time consolidating their theoretical knowledge of important analytical techniques.

The actual content is subject to continual change to meet the requirements of those working with the methods in practice. Apart from fundamental experiments on chromatography and spectroscopy, modern methods such as the analysis of formaldehyde by means of HPLC or DIN methods and cation determination by means of polarography are taught.

In the Organic Chemistry Laboratory, the students receive simple instructions and thus practise how to properly assemble glass apparatus, recognise hazardous materials and learn how to handle them properly. The experiments are chosen such that the students gain insights into the following methods as they perform them: dosing of liquids and solids, heating and cooling, mixing and shaking, drying and purification of liquids and solids.

The substances presented are identified to determine the most important physical properties using simple methods such as the determination of the melting point, refractometry, thin-layer chromatography and polarimetry.
