322063 VU Analytical Chemistry in Natural Product Research - M14 (2018S)

1.00 ECTS (1.00 SWS), SPL 32 - Pharmazie
Continuous assessment of course work


Language: English



Lectures would be held in the following dates: (9.45 - 11.15 Am ) @ Room 2D404


Aims, contents and method of the course

Registration via Moodle!
The course is held in English language, and it offers the participants a good chance to hold discussions in standard scientific English, thus acquiring some exposure to the technical terms and definitions in their native international form.
The course endows an introduction to the crucial notions and approaches in analytical chemistry with main focus on LC-MS (Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry) . The focus is on analytical tools needed/used by Pharmacognosy/Pharmaceutical chemistry students. The aim of the course is to introduce the students how to use analytical chemistry ion terms of quantitation, detection/identification, separation and assessment/interpretation of a specific analyte or class of analytes. The course is supported with lab work mainly focusing on LC-MS Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry.

The course is in 2 blocks: theory lectures block followed by lab work (case studies).
• Understand fundamental concepts in analytical chemistry
• Develop an outline of the key analytical aspects:
o Sampling, experimental error /precision and accuracy
o Quantification principles
o Instrumentation
o Applications
• Acquire deep knowledge in Chromatography/ mass spectrometry
• Develop methods by implanting LC-MS in a pharmacognostical application.

Assessment and permitted materials

1. Oral exam (to test theoretical knowledge)
2. Practical exam (to develop a method to quantify a target analyte)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Preferably students already or about to finish the second phase of their studies"Zweiter Studienabschnitt" or students of the program "Master Drug Discovery and Development".
