Instrumental Analysis
CHEM 318
Spring 2024
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: E&ES 396

Chemical analysis has kept pace with the advent of modern technology through the development of instruments capable of ever-improving levels of detection for both qualitative and quantitative analysis. Many students are exposed to the use and interpretation of these modern methods of chemical analysis, but this experience typically comes with little understanding of how and why these instruments work. This course will investigate instrumentation across three broad categories of analysis: electrochemical, spectrochemical, and separations. The lecture course will be supplemented with a practical laboratory experience. Instrumental analysis is part of the required curriculum listed in the American Chemical Society Guidelines for Bachelor's Degree Programs, and this course is highly recommended for students who intend to pursue graduate studies and/or employment in a chemical discipline.
