Learning activities and teaching methods
Methods of individual activities, Demonstration, Laboratory work
Learning outcomes
The aim of the subject is to familiarize with chosen methods for preparation and characterization of inorganic pigments, industrial fertilizers and with utilization of calorimetric methods for study of materials properties and technological processes.
Passing the subject bring to student the ability use methods for particle materials characterization (pigments, fertilizers). They are competent to decide about choice of method appropriate for obtaining of information about studied inorganic materials.
Prerequisites
Knowledge of courses: General and Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, Laboratory of Analytical Instrumental Method, Chemical Engineering Laboratory Practise.

Assessment methods and criteria
Home assignment evaluation

The way of passing the subject is by form of classified credit. Students are monitored by laboratory practice. The laboratory reports are judged by teachers. The part of result make the written test.
