The goal of this course is to furnish theoretical knowledges about quantitative analytical chemistry. Conventional gravimetric and volumetric analytical method will be deeply addressed. Moreover, theoretical and instrumental aspects of gas chromatographic, UV-Vis and IR spectroscopic method will be issued.
Students are expected to prove to possess the following skills: i) well assessed knowledges about chemical equilibria in aqueous media, which governs the feasibility of conventional gravimetric and volumetric methods; ii)deep understandings of the theoretical basis of hardware organization in spectroscopic and gaschromatographic instrumentations.

Fundamental theoretical aspects of electrolytes and their effects on ionic aqueous equilibria; ionic strength and activity; systematic treatment of complex equilibria; theoretical background on electrochemistry; gravimetric methods.
Volumetric and gravimetric analysis – pH of acid and basic solutions; acid/base titration; acid/base buffers; precipitation titrations; complexometric titrations; redox titrations; acid-base, adsorption, redox and complexometric indicators.
Instrumental Analysis – theory and applications of potentiometry; UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy; introduction to chromatographic methods; gaschromatography.
