The course will introduce students to the automation in analytical chemistry and to process analytical chemistry.
This course will be divided into two modules. The first module will be dedicated to the acquisition of data in process and analytical chemistry. The basic principles of analogic and digital electronics will be discussed, as well as the data treatment. Here, the principal categories of physical and chemical sensors will be presented.
The second module will be dedicated to the development and understanding of automation in chemical analysis, and to the chemical processes and the methodologies of process control and optimization.

Sensors and Basic Electronics (32 hours)
- The basic principles of analogic and digital electronics.
- Chemical data acquisition; DA and Ad conversion.
- Some ascpect of statistical data treatment with specific application to chemical data.
- Sensors in Analyical and Process Chemistry:
o Physical sensors (temperature, pressure, flow, light etc.)
o Chemical sensors (electrochemical, spectroscopic)

Process analytical chemistry and automation (32 hours)
- why automation in analytical chemistry : instrumental strategies
- Robotics in analytical chemistry

- process analytical chemistry-examples of basic chemistry
- basic electronics
- Process Analytical Chemistry : theories and examples of basic chemical processes
- introduction to industrial process control (PID, SCADA etc.)
The course will take place both from a theoretical point of view with lectures in the courtroom, and with examples drawn from experts in the field.

Handouts provided by the teacher for both lectures and tutorials website Consultation on process analytical chemistry. Use of textbooks, provided by the teacher in class.
