CHEM-3214 Analytical Chemistry II
A course for increasing the knowledge of gathering qualitative and quantitative information about the composition and structure of matter. This course is to help the student gain an understanding of the tools available for solving analytical problems. The pitfalls that accompany physical measurements and the limitations in sensitivity, precision, and accuracy of instrumental measurement will be discussed. The strengths and limitations of instruments that are currently available in modern industrial and research laboratories, such as the gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, high performance liquid chromatograph, atomic absorption spectroscope, ultraviolet-visible light spectrophotometer, Fourier transform infrared spectroscope, and Raman spectroscope, will be covered in detail. Lecture-3 hours; Laboratory-3 hours. This course is normally offered in the spring semester of odd numbered years.
