Jelena J. Mutić, Ph.D.
associate professor, Faculty of Chemistry, Studentski trg 12-16, Beograd


Slađana Z. Đurđić
assistant, Faculty of Chemistry, Studentski trg 12-16, Beograd

Hours of instruction:

Weekly: three hours of lectures + five hours of labwork (3+0+5)


The goal of the course Instrumental Analytical Chemistry is to enable students to independently conduct measurements and determinations within the basic electrochemical (conductometry, potentiometry, electrogravimetry, coulometry, polarography and voltammetry) and optical methods (UV/VIS spectrophotometry, flame emission and atomic absorption spectrophotometry). In addition to this, students will acquire theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of speciation in environmental chemistry. During group and individual activities students do graphical and calculational presentation of the results of measurements.


Upon completing this course the student is able to appropriately select and apply micro- and macro-instrumental methods in the analysis of complex samples, including the samples from the environment.

Teaching methods:

Lectures and experimental work (group and individual activities).

Extracurricular activities:

As a part of their extracurricular activities, students are obliged to complete the graphs and complete each assignment which was a part of both group and individual activities.
