CH3110 - Special Topics in Analytical Chemistry
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Analytical Chemistry plays a crucial role in any discipline where the characterisation
of materials is important. This subject extends the material delivered in CH2103 and
provides in-depth principles and applications of advanced analytical chemistry in
the modern world. Special topics include electroanalytical methods (potentiometry,
coulometry, amperometry, voltammetry) and advanced analytical instrumentation for
microanalysis such as electron microscope and atomic force microscope. These techniques
will be discussed in the context of industrial, environmental and biomedical applications.
- understand the analytical principles underlying electrochemistry;
- apply the electroanalytical techniques for measurement of chemical species;
- employ advanced microscopic methods for materials characterisation;
- evaluate electrochemical and microscopic techniques with knowledge of the limitations
and complementarity of the techniques.
|Students should have taken a second year analytical chemistry subject
