Teaching description

Teaching program is provisional and may be subject to changes

Base knowledge analytical chemistry is recommended.

- Introduction to bio-analytical chemical methods and related analysis methodologies.

-Focuses on the most important aspects in all steps of an analytical method to determine biological active compounds in various biological matrices.

- Instrumental methods of advanced analysis for applications in bio-analytical chemistry.

- Main spectroscopic techniques for the chemical analysis of complex biological matrices and interfaces.

- Methods for flow analysis.

 -Iphenate techniques: GC, LC, EC coupled with MS and SIMS.

-Surface analytical techniques for bio-interface and biomaterials.

 Electrochemical (bio)- sensors.

The main objectives of this course are summarized below:

 

-To apply the basic concepts of analytical chemistry to real biological systems, which are relevant in different fields, mainly human health, environmental control, food safety and biotechnology industry.

 

-To integrate the bio-recognition and the biological reactions to the analytical methodology.

 

- To use the most common techniques in chemistry to analyze, separate and identify compounds within a biological framework.

 

- To apply this knowledge to the resolution of bio-analytical problems.

Learning methods consist of formal lectures and integrative lectures making use of slides. Outside these activities, the students are expected to read assigned papers from the scientific literature.

The exam is oral with a mark out of thirty. The test also includes the discussion of the reports produced by the students relating to their practical laboratory activities.
