CH2103 - Analytical Chemistry
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Offered in SP2, every year
Analytical Chemistry is the branch of chemistry that provides qualitative information
(what is in a sample) and quantitative information (how much is in a sample) about
matter. The topics covered in this subject include core skills in analytical chemistry
such as data analysis, classical volumetric, gravimetric and titrimetric methods,
instrumental analysis in analytical chemistry such as spectrometry (UV-Vis, IR, AAS,
AES, MS) and chromatography (GC, HPLC), as well as principles of Quality Assurance
and Quality Control and appropriate documentation of analytical procedures. All techniques
and methods will be discussed in a range of industrial, environmental, biological
and medical contexts.
- describe the principles of analytical chemistry;
- explain the analytical principles of spectroscopic techniques;
- distinguish the need and uses of separation methods;
- apply a range of analytical techniques with knowledge of the limitations and complementarity
of the techniques.
