CH5203 - Analytical Chemistry (Advanced)
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
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.
- Comprehend concepts in instrumental analysis, including accuracy and precision, sensitivity,
selectivity, detection limit and dynamic range;
- Describe the principles and applications of spectroscopic techniques including visible
absorption, fluorescence, and atomic mass spectrometry;
- Demonstrate knowledge of electrochemical techniques for chemical analysis;
- Distinguish the need for, and uses of, separation techniques such as gas and liquid
- Compare and contrast a number of case studies illustrating the many and varied uses
of chemical instrumentation for solving analytical problems;
- Demonstrate expertise in the manipulation of chemicals, the use of chemical analysis
techniques, risk assessment and the use of modern information technologies and data
- Work in small groups and be competent in the written and oral presentation of scientific
data, including in the context of an Evidence Hearing scenario.
