|This lab course provides an in-depth overview of the various steps that have to be carried out when analyzing qualitatively and quantitatively organic pollutants in environmental matrices such as soil and surface waters. The aims are (i) to get acquainted with the theoretical and practical background required to determine trace organic pollutants in various environmental matrices, and (ii) to get hands-on experience with state of the art methodology and instrumentation used for organic trace analysis.
|All steps including sampling, sample preparation, enrichment, separation, identification and quantification will be carried out using some prominent model pollutants present in natural waters and waste waters. The techniques and instrumentation involved include a.o., solid phase extraction (SPE), gas chromatographic analysis using mass-spectrometric (GC/MS) detection, and liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass-spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). Evaluation of the analytical data is an important component of the course.
|A script will be available.
|Selected papers will be discussed during the course.
|Prerequisites / Notice
|The course builds on the knowledge acquired in the bachelor course “Introduction to Environmental Chemistry/Analytical Chemistry” held in the 5th semester. A script of this course is available.
