Syllabus
Prerequisites: The knowledge of Analytical Chemistry 1 and 2 will be necessary.
Target skills and knowledge: In view of the main EU and Italian environmental rules, the course introduces students to the basic techniques and methodologies for the sampling and analysis of environmental matrices. Particular attention is devoted to air pollution, considering the following aspects:
- Introduction to the problems and environmental processes.
- Air pollution, local and global phenomena and effects.
- Elements of EU/IT legislation.
- Techniques and Methodologies for the analysis of environmental matrices.
- EU Regulations REACH and CLP.
Examination methods: Oral examination. A specific test on EU Regulations (REACH and CLP) will be proposed at the conclusion of the course.
Course unit contents: The course is divided into two parts. The First Part (40 hours, 5 CFU) deals with the most significant aspects of atmospheric chemistry and air pollution:
- The atmosphere, structure and properties;
- Chemistry of the stratosphere and the reduction of the ozone layer;
- Chemistry of the troposphere and air pollution;
- The Italian network of air quality monitoring;
- Analyzers for the measurement of air pollution;
- The origin, properties and techniques of measurement of aerosol;
- Biogeochemical cycles, with particular reference to the carbon cycle;
- The environmental consequences of energy production and the effects of greenhouse gases on climate changes;
- International protocols (Kyoto and Montreal);
- Pollution in the industrial environment and the protection of workers' health (TLV);
- Examples of environmental monitoring techniques.

The Second Part (8 hours, 1 CFU) is dedicated to REACH and CLP Regulations:
- The European Regulations EC 1907/2006 REACH and EC 1272/2008 CLP. Application, problems and opportunities for the modern chemist;
- Identification of chemicals under REACH and CLP.
