The aim of the course is to gain knowledge necessary for interpretation of data obtained by the analytical procedures, based on chromatographic and mass spectrometric principles, which are used for determination of different components of food. The following thematic areas are presented: (i) various chromatographic techniques hyphenated with different mass spectrometric approaches; (ii) interpretation of mass spectra; (iii) software for the identification of analytes and data evaluation; (iv) realization of non-target screening in food analysis; (v) quantification methods and techniques; confirmation; (vi) statistical methods for data processing (multivariate analysis).

Students will understand the principles of modern separation and detection techniques based on high-resolution gas and liquid chromatography with different types of mass spectrometric detectors. They will get the knowledge of mass spectra interpretation, and learn about different softwares used for analytes identification and quantification. They will be able to implement target analyzes and non-target screening, taking into account available analytical instrumentation, and will have the knowledge necessary to properly evaluate and interpret the measured data.
