The Institute for Environmental Technology and Energy Economics sets great value upon teaching. In addition to several courses offered to students of the TUHH, the institute is involved in national and international educational projects: e.g. a student exchange with Jordan universities, Erasmus+ / DAAD projects, RECREEW Spring School and „integral“ an advanced training program for refugee-engineers.

Following list contains the courses of the iUE open for students of TUHH this semester. Students can find further information on Stud.IP.

Practical Course Aquatic Chemistry
Prof. Dr. Kerstin Kuchta, Dipl.-Ing.
Type of Course:
Practical course

Practical lab work on e.g. the following topics

  • Determination of heavy metal (Zinc)
  • Determination of  FOS/TAC
  • Complexometric titration
  • Fe2+-complex stoichiometry

Discussion and learning according to e.g. the following questions

  • What is redox potential, how does it come about (formulae, relationship), how is it measured and for what purpose?
  • What is the difference between distilled water, double distilled water, deionized water, demineralised water, mineral water normal water
  • How many molecules are in 0.001 moles of water?
  • How many moles are in 100 water molecules?
  • What is a \"standard solution\"? Why standard solutions are prepared?
  • If you have a solution that is 5% (w/v) of an alcohol in water, what mass of alcohol is present in 1.0 L of this solution?
  •  How do you determine concentration of hydrogen ions at given pH of a solution?
  • What will be the molarity of hydrogen ions in a pH 5 solution?
  • What is the meaning of the equivalence point of a titration curve, for what purposes are titrations used?
  • What is a weak acid and a strong base? Explain by 2 examples.•What is the difference between concentration and activity?
  • What is complexation and what is a complexation constant?
  • What are: Solubility product, colloids, aquo-ion, ion strength, element speciation, and metal speciation?
  • Calculate for each experiment the masses needed to produce the respective solutions.
