Syllabus
Prerequisites: Students must possess knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry, biology and physiology
Target skills and knowledge: Students will acquire knowledge of the main technologies in agro-food sciences, for qualitative and quantitative identification of nutrients and potentially toxic residues of food contaminants, in order to ensure safety, quality, healthiness, tipicality and origin of agro-food products.
Examination methods: Comprehensive oral examination at the end of the course.
Assessment criteria: The student is expected to be able to arrange a proper set of analyses for the identification and quantification of a given analyte in different samples.
Course unit contents: Different procedures for extraction and separation from biological matrices, will be described, as a function of the chemico-physical characteristics of the analytes. Special attention will be given to the main innovations in separation technologies (liquid/liquid, SPE, QuEChERS).
Teaching will focus on molecules that can usually be found in plant and animal tissues, such as nutrients, essential elements, antioxidants, flavonoids, polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins, as well as other accidental contaminants as heavy metals, mycotoxins, carcinogenics, dioxins, pesticides and veterinary drugs.
Description of identification protocols for organic molecules (nutrients and/or contaminants) will include novel techniques in analytical chromatography and advances in detectors, ranging from UV to mass spectrometry; and in the field of essential or toxic elements, innovations in different fields, from atomic adsorption to ICP (Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry).
Finally, the description of Agencies involved in the assessment of Food Quality will be provided, together with a description of the National Surveillance Plans that are issued yearly by the Ministry of Health.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Teacher-centered lessons: 5 CFU, laboratory: 1 CFU (16 hours)
Additional notes about suggested reading: Textbooks suggested by teachers; other files (doc, ppt slides, scientific papers) will be available on the moodle platform https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/ or provided upon request.


Office hours: any business day, by appointment.
