Đurđa D. Krstić
assistant, Faculty of Chemistry, Studentski trg 12-16, Beograd

Hours of instruction:

Weekly: two hours of lectures + one hour of exercises + six hours of labwork (2+1+6)


Helping students acquire basic knowledge of quantitative chemical analysis (gravimetry and volumetry); introducing students to the procedures of taking representative samples; selecting and applying the most appropriate methods; assessing approaches in the course of solving problems during the analysis of complex i.e. real samples; developing skills, accuracy and precision necessary for working in a laboratory.


The student is qualified to choose the appropriate method for quantitative analysis of the sample and to perform the determination with the required accuracy and precision.

Teaching methods:

Lectures, laboratory work (group and individual) and theory exercises.

Extracurricular activities:

The student goes over the results obtained during group activities and records the results in his workbook, does calculation problems and other kinds of problems and elaborates the principles of the analysis.
