Learning outcomes of the course unit

This course focuses on acquiring a basic knowledge of general and inorganic chemistry so the student may be, without problems, have a bearing in the issues of inorganic chemistry, understand photo degradation processes, their foundations are inorganic processes, always with a consideration of restoration, conservation and storage of photographic materials.

Mode of study

Students will no in this course perform individual work, their understanding of degradation processes will be monitored arising form the chemical bases of photographic material and an estimation of the possible risk connected with inappropriate storage/manipulation/examination of those materials.
