Class 3: Buffer, acid & base titration
Class 4: Complex compounds & chelates
Class 5: Precipitation & common ion
Class 6: Phase equilibria
Intermediate exam
Class 7: Chromatography & absorption
Class 8: Introduction to spectroscopy
Class 9: Vibrational spectroscopy
Class 10: Atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy
Class 11: Redox, potentiometric titration
Class 12: Gas chromatography & mass spectrometry

•Grade Assessment
Grading will follow the rules for G30 students who have entered NU before AY2020 (5 letter system) or since AY2020 (6 letter system):

maximum TOTAL 100% (= 100 pts)

Homework submission: 10% (= 10 points)
Intermediate exam: 40% (= 40 pts)
Final exam (comprehensive): 50% (= 50 pts)
The intermediate and final exam are mandatory!

Grades are final and calculated on the basis of the performances during class (homework submission) and in the two exams only. There will be no possibility to improve a grade after the final exam. Students who miss the final exam due to a (documented) illness, injury or other unavoidable reasons can ask the instructor.
The course will be graded "F" (failed) if less than 60% of the total points were obtained. The course will be graded as "absent" ("A" or "W") if withdrawal was applied before the intermediate exam, as stated in "course withdrawal"

Face-to-Face class and if required remote class (MS-Teams, recorded) combined.

•Contacting Faculty
Students can ask questions during class or after class, ask by email or make an appointment with the instructor.
