Syllabus
Prerequisites: Topics of the courses of Environmental Chemistry 2 and Analytical Chemistry result to be pivotal
Target skills and knowledge: Concerning the main EU and national environmental regulations, particularly those related to the air and water quality, the course introduces students to the main techniques and methods of sampling and analysis used in the study of processes and environmental matrices.
In particular, the course will focus on:
- Introduction to problems and environmental processes.
- Elements of EU legislation and IT.
- Techniques and methodologies of analysis of environmental matrices.
Examination methods: Oral.
Reports of the activities carried out in lab are mandatory.
Assessment criteria: Level of understanding of chemical and physical principles underlying the studied phenomena .
Knowledge of the instrumental basic details and processes.
Knowledge of technical and scientific terminology.
Ability to streamline the information learned and to synthesize them into a single framework of analysis of environmental issues.
Course unit contents: For environmental chemistry 2 the course is divided into two modules.
The course of ANALYSIS OF POLLUTANTS (6 CFU) includes the second module (4 CFU) + 2 CFU laboratory with instrumental analysis applied to environmental issues.
The first part of the lecture course (32 hours, 4 CFU, lecturer: prof. Andrea Tapparo) is focused on the main air quality parameters and their measurement:
- Air pollution and air quality monitoring network.
- The automatic analyzers for the measurement of the air pollution.
- The origin, properties and measurement of particulate air matter.
- The pollution at the workplace and the protection of workers' health.
- Technical and environmental monitoring methodologies.
- Renewable energy sources, air pollution and climate change.
The second module (32 hours, 4 CFU, lecturer: Prof. Sara Bogialli) is dedicated to water pollution:
-Chemistry of the aquatic environment
-Macro and micro-pollutants of the aquatic environment: organic compounds, metals, emerging pollutants. Sources of contamination, toxicological and regulatory aspects.
-Classification of water bodies and methodologies for the determination of the principal chemical and biological parameters.
-Treatments of wastewater and drinking water
-Risk evaluation and management of the main pollutants
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: -Lessons
-Lab experiences: sampling, sample traetment and determination of chemicals in environmental matrices by using instrumental methods (LC-UV/FLD; LC-MS; GC-MS,ICP-OED, etc.)
Additional notes about suggested reading: -Books
