Chemistry and environmental analysis

Student im NZ-Labor.


The Laboratory Chemistry and Environmental Analysis is divided into two main areas: Chemistry/Physical Chemistry and Environmental Analytical Methods.

Chemistry / Physical Chemistry

In the laboratory chemistry/physical chemistry practical introductions into the basics of chemistry and physical chemistry take place. The students learn chemical and physical-chemical basics such as neutralization, acid/base systems, redox systems, solubility, precipitation, thermodynamic quantities, kinetic processes, state diagrams, as well as electrochemical laws in practice.

The following experiments are offered experimentally:

  • Redox/ electrochemistry
  • Calorimetry
  • Conductometric acid/ alkaline titration
  • Acid/ base systems
  • Melting diagrams of eutectic systems
  • Ester saponification
  • Solubility diagrams of ternary systems

Environmental analytical methods

In the laboratory for environmental analytical methods, samples from the environmental areas water, soil and air can be analysed.

The following modern analysis systems are available:

  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Ion chromatography (IC)
  • Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS)
  • Infrared spectroscopy (IR)
  • Ultraviolet/ Visible Spectroscopy (UV-Vis)
  • Fluorescence Specroscopy
  • Voltammetry (VA)
  • Kjeldahl distillation unit
