2. Pre-Requisites

Have approved Basic Training Module

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The subject of Applied Analytical Chemistry I has optional character in the Degree in Chemistry. The student has already taken the subjects of Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry and, Volumetric and Gravimetric Analysis and Instrumental Analysis I in the second year in which the foundations of the Analytical Chemistry and the Analytical Process, providing the basic skills and knowledge necessary to face the present subject with guarantees of success. In the third year they study the subjects of Instrumental Analysis II and Instrumental Methods of Separation, compulsory subjects of the third year. This subject studies the application of the main analytical methods supported by the knowledge acquired in the compulsory subjects previously mentioned. It is intended that students develop the necessary skills to be able to solve problems of an analytical nature, that the graduate can be raised in their career
