Dušanka M. Milojković Opsenica, Ph.D.
full professor, Faculty of Chemistry, Studentski trg 12-16, Beograd

Filip Lj. Andrić, Ph.D.
associate professor, Faculty of Chemistry, Studentski trg 12-16, Beograd


Hours of instruction:

Weekly: two hours of lectures + two hours of exercises (2+2+0)


The goal of this course is to provide basic theoretical and practical knowledge of chemical and physical principles which are important in analytical chemistry and chemistry in general.


During the course, a student should learn the basic concepts regarding solutions, protolytic theory of acids and bases, buffers, ion dissolution and precipitation, complex and redox systems, extraction and chromatography; perform a complete classical qualitative analysis of an unknown sample; write simple reports and use the literature from the field of analytical chemistry.

Teaching methods:

Lectures, practical/calculation exercises.

Extracurricular activities:


  • Dr Tomislav Janjić: Teorijski osnovi analitičke hemije, Naučna knjiga, Beograd, 1994.
