Analytical Chemistry Lecture and Laboratory
Prerequisite for CHEM-UA 662: (CHEM-UA 126 or 128 or 129 with a C or better) AND MATH-UA 121 with a C or better. Physical Chemistry 651 or 652 recommended as a co-requisite.
This course provides instruction in the use of instruments that are central to modern chemical analyses. The principles that underlie the measurements and the corresponding instrument function are presented. Criteria for the selection of particular instrumental methods are described and the advantages and limitations of specific methods are discussed. The laboratory component of the course provides the opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with a variety of instrumental methods that they will encounter in the laboratory as undergraduates, and later in the work environment or advanced study programs. Lecture and Lab, 4 credits.
