Learning outcomes
Master: Operational safety. Frequently required laboratory glassware and instruments. Measurements of mass and volume. Basic separation techniques (filtration, crystallization, distillation, sublimation, extraction). Preparation of solutions. Establishing the basic physical constants (melting point, boiling point, density). The use of tables of chemical and physical properties of compounds.
To explain and deduce basic knowledge on field, including simpler problem solving. To work practically and safely in chemistry lab.
Prerequisites
knowledge of high school chemistry

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined examination

100% attendance, elaborated and defended protocols for every exercise Each laboratory is initiated by a short written test. Test will verify the knowledge of principles of current laboratory task. In the event of not sufficient knowledge necessary to perform laboratory exercises, student may be excluded from the laboratory.
