The course introduces students to modern methods of analysis of multicomponent hydrocarbon mixtures using the effective chromatographic separation methods as well as spectrometric methods (UV / VIS, FTIR, MS, NMR). Students will be introduced with examples of analysis of real hydrocarbon fractions and products as well as samples of the contaminated environment.
