The course will provide students with detailed information regarding the use of instrumental separation (chromatographic) and spectral (UV, FTIR, MS) techniques for the analysis of complex sample matrices. Attention is paid to general aspects of analysis of raw materials, fractions and products with which it is possible to meet in the processing, distrubution and use of fossil and renewable fuels (biofuels). Attention is also paid to the analysis of fuel contaminants in the environment.
