Learning outcomes
The aim of this course is to acquaint students with the fundamentals of physical and colloid chemistry to the extent necessary for the study of successive courses, which are related to materials and processes used in cosmetic and food technologies. The course is also aimed to develop practical laboratory skills and familiarize students with the basic instrumental techniques suitable for measuring the physico-chemical variables.
After completing the course, students have the needed fundamentals of physical and colloid chemistry and are able to properly apply this knowledge in further studium and solution of physical-chemical problems in practice.
Knowledge of mathematics, physics and inorganic, organic and analytical chemistry.

Assessment methods and criteria
Grade (Using a grade system), Written examination, Analysis of works made by the student (Technical products), Systematic observation of the student

Requirements for the fulfilment of the subject - credit and examination. A cumulative credit of the subjects comprises both the calculation seminar and the laboratory excercises. The following conditions are required: Seminars: compulsory attendance - only two absences can be excused. In case that a student is absent in more than two seminars, he is obliged to calculate 5 examples on the topic related to the missed seminar. Two written test must be passed in order to obtain the credit (in the middle and at the end of the semester). If a student does not pass any of these tests, i.e. does not receive evaluation "A" - "E" according to the ECTS scale, repeting the respective test is required. Two additional terms will be available for this purpose, any of the tests (or even both) can be written on any of these terms. Laboratory excercise: 100% attendance is required together with writing 6 protocols from the laboratory tasks that pass the review of the course tutor and comply with the point evaluation (i.e. receiving more than 50% points including the tests in the individuals lessons). Examination: knowledge of the curriculum content presented on the lectures by either oral or written form - 20 questions (200 points), calculation test has influence for classification at total result of exam. The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
