Inorg. and Anal. Chemistry

Subject is based on:

Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Biochemistry

basic mathematics and physics 


Analytical Chemistry Laboratory (BMEVESAA403)

Aim of the subject:

The course covers the principles, materials, methods and selected applications of chemical and biosensing devices and systems. It presents the main modalities to integrate molecular recognition with various forms of  signal transduction, such as electrochemical, optical, mass, and acoustic. The performance characteristics of the sensors are linked to their design, type of receptors, materials and signal transduction, identifying strategies for enhanced selectivity and sensitivity. The topics emphasize state of the art medical diagnostic, environmental and food safety applications of chemical and biosensors.

Upon successful completion of the course, students are expected:

a)      to understand chemical and biosensing and the motivation behind sensor development

b)      to understand the performance characteristics and applicability of chemical and biosensors

c)      to become familiar with synthetic and biological origin receptors and the basics of molecular recognition mechanisms.

d)     to understand transduction mechanisms and the modalities of coupling with selective molecular recognition

e)      to be able to extend the principles of chemical and biosensing towards developing biosensing devices.
