Hours of instruction:

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


The goal of this course is to help students acquire fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge of chemical and physical principles relevant to analytical chemistry and chemistry in general.


Upon completing this course, the student is able to: understand the interactions between ions in an aqueous solution, understand the principles of the chemical equilibrium in aqueous solutions of acids, bases, salts, sparingly soluble electrolytes, coordination compounds, redox systems; calculate the content of equilibrium particles in a solution; understand the fundamentals of the distribution between phases in extraction and chromatographic methods of separation; perform a complete qualitative analysis of an unknown sample; write simple reports and use the literature in the field of analytical chemistry.

Teaching methods:

Lectures, theory / calculation exercises.

Extracurricular activities:


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