Analytical Chemistry is the branch of the discipline which provides qualitative information (what is in a sample) and quantitative information (how much is in a sample) about matter. This subject introduces the student to a range of techniques used for the analysis of an array of materials. The following topics are covered. Classical volumetric, gravimetric and titrimetric analysis. Analytical Atomic Spectroscopy - AA and ICP techniques and their application. Chromatography - basic theory and applications using liquid chromatography and gas chromatography as well as hyphenated techniques such as GC-MS and HPLC-MS. Capillary electrophoresis. Electroanalytical techniques, including potentiometric, voltametric and titrimetric methods. Techniques of sample preparation. Principles of Quality Assurance and Quality Control. The discussion of these techniques will be illustrated using industrial, environmental, biological and medical examples.
