CENTER FOR APPLIED
SPECTROSCOPY

INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOLS 2004

ENVIRONMENT ANALYSIS

University of Belgrade, SCG
Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy

August 29th – September 4th 2004.

Jointly organized by

Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy, Belgrade, SCG
and University of Dortmund (INFU), Dortmund, FRG

Sponsored by DAAD
Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe
Thermo Electron Corporation

Objective of the Summer school
The objective of the Summer school in Belgrade within the Center for Applied Spectroscopy is to give advanced students in chemistry practical instructions to conduct environmental analysis according to the current state of the art. We will focus on one particular type of samples that can be analyzed using specific instrumental methods: HPLC with UV detector, HPLC combined with mass spectrometry detector as well as MS/MS analysis. Within the course samples of water and fruits will be analyzed for phenols and pesticides respectively. During the workshop students will get training in sample preparation, sample clean up, quantification procedures and method evaluation. In addition, lectures will be given to cover some of the most important theoretical aspects.
