Objective of the Summer school
The objective of the Summer school 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 art. We will focus on one specific group of chemicals - the hydrocarbons - which are known to be a wide spread contamination in soil and water due to industrial activities or unintended spill. The oil refinery in Novi Sad was damaged heavily during the NATO attacks in 1999 and as a result large quantities of petroleum, petroleum derivatives and various burning products were released into the environment. Within the course sampling, in situ measurements and the analytical determination of hydrocarbons and PAH’s will be made in cooperation with the Refinery and the Faculty of Technology of the University of Novi Sad. During the workshop students will get a 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.
