With this subject, the student is expected to apply the knowledge acquired in previous subjects, as well as new concepts related to quality in the analytical laboratory, to the resolution of real analytical problems and to the generation of quality analytical results. The theoretical concepts introduced in this subject about quality in the analytical laboratory, use of reference materials and uncertainty budget of experimental results, among others, will be implemented through the participation of students in an interlaboratory comparison exercise for students of analytical chemistry. In this exercise, students will be faced with the resolution of a particular analytical problem, which must be addressed following the steps of a Chemical Measurement Process (CMP). To do this, the student must demonstrate his/her ability to select the most appropriate analytical method for the proposed problem, to develop the selected method (sample preparation, measurement step, treatment and evaluation of obtained data), to interpret the obtained results and to make a detailed report on working activities. In this subject, the student is also intended to be able to study and to plan the activities to be done, both individually and in a group, using the specific bibliography available and theoretical concepts acquired in this subject and others previous.
