Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to apply different wet chemical analysis principles (gravimetric and volumetric analyses) and perform simple spectroscopic measurements (Flame-Emission-Spectroscopy, UV-VIS Spectroscopy, Fluorescence Spectroscopy).

Subject of course

Quantitative analyses and statistical data evaluation of different samples using wet chemical analysis principles: Gravimetry: quantitative analysis of Nickel and Iron by precipitation analysis, Volumetric analyses: Acid/base titration: Kjehldal analysis, Oxidimetry: quantitative analysis of percarbonate content in a detergent, complexometric titration: quantitative analysis of Ca and Mg in a mineral water, Flame-Emission-Spectroscopy: quantitative analysis of Potassium in a fertilizer, UV-VIS Spectroscopy: quantitative Protein-Analysis

Teaching methods

Practical exercises in the field of quantitative wet chemical analysis including a discussion of exercise content prior to practical work. Preparation of a report for each exercise.

Mode of examination


Additional information

The laboratory courses will be held in the winter semester 2022/23 in two runs with a maximum of 48 participants per course. On the last Thursday and Friday before the start of the practical work, the inventory of the laboratory place has to be taken over, and introductory course instructions are given during which the attendance is compulsory.

1st Course: takeover of laboratory place: Thursday, 13.10.2022, Introduction and Test: Friday, 14.10.2022 . The working time for the laboratory is 12:30 - 17:30 during Tuesday, 18.10. - Thursday, 10.11.2022 in the students' laboratory 5th floor. Return of the laboratory place is on Friday 11.11.2022

2nd Course: takeover of laboratory place: Thursday, 17.12.2022, Introduction and Test: Friday, 18.11.2022 . The working time for the laboratory is 12:30 - 17:30 during Tuesday, 22.11. - Tuesday, 13.13.2022 in the students' laboratory 5th floor. Return of the laboratory place is on Wednesday 14.12.2022

Registration modalities

Für die Anmeldung zur Laborübung ist bis spätestens Sonntag 11.09.2022 eine persönliche E-Mail an Frau Sarah Maschler (sarah.maschler@tuwien.ac.at), Mitarbeiterin im Sekretariat des Instituts für Chemische Technologien und Analytik, mit folgenden Angaben zu senden: 

Vorname, Familienname, Matrikelnummer, Studienkennzahl, Datum und Note der Prüfung aus Analytischer Chemie I (LVA 164.053), Datum StEOP-Abschluss, Datum der positiven Absolvierung der LVA 104.084 (Mathematik für Technische Chemie I) sowie der bevorzugte Kurstermin.

Falls es aufgrund beschränkter Ressourcen notwendig ist, eine Reihung der angemeldeten Studierenden vorzunehmen, so werden Studierende mit abgeschlossener StEOP vorgezogen. Für alle anderen Anmeldungen welche die Eingangsvoraussetzung (Prüfung aus Analytischer Chemie I) erfüllen, wird als nächstes Reihungskriterium die positive Absolvierung der LVA 104.084 (Mathematik für Technische Chemie I) verwendet (im Sinne von "Hohe Notwendigkeit der Teilnahme zur Erfüllung des Curriculums" im Studienplan). Die weiteren Reihungskriterien werden in der im Studienplan angegebenen Reihenfolge (1) - (3) angewendet.


The student must have at least all of the course(s) completed listed below:
