529-0058-00 Analytische Chemie II
(or equivalent)

The individual and in depth (literature) study of a theme related but separate from the themes presented during the lecture requires different compentences compared to the ones which are tested during the oral exam. Therefore the students must give a presentation during the semester about a theme based on their study of the literature. A list of possible themes and corresponding literature will be provided during the lecture.
The student presentation is a mandatory "pass/fail" element of the course and must be passed separately from the oral exam. If the presentation fails it will not be possible to pass the final exam. A renewed presentation is not required in case the oral exam has to be repeated.
