Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic knowledge of analytical chemistry, in particular chromatography.

Aim

The aim of the course is to provide an increased knowledge of chromatography and related analytical techniques, especially for use in applications of environmental interest, and to provide a survey of other, often used methods for environmental analysis.

Content

The main part of the course deals with chromatography, in particular chromatography used in applications of environmental interest. Instrumental aspects of gas and liquid chromatography, different types of columns, selection of mobile and stationary phases, optimisation of selectivity, capacity and resolution, injection systems, detectors, interpretation of chromatograms, retention data, mass spectrometry, especially GC/MS, different sampling techniques and sample preparation, derivatisation, trace enrichment.
A survey of methods for sampling and analysis of air pollutants, including methods for remote sensing (DOAS, LIDAR), is given.
A short survey of methods for sampling and analysis of water pollutants is also given.
The student will use chromatographic and mass spectrometric methods for determination of e.g. organic pollutants in urban air (adsorbent sampling) and in water (SPME = solid phase micro-extraction).

Literature

Textbook and/or dedicated texts.

Examination

Written examination
