Instrumental analysis covers the theory and methods for the separation, identification and quantitation of chemical species known as analytes in chemical samples. Students will explore the basic tools and language of analytical chemistry and the current trends in analytical instrumentation. The theory and application of spectrophotometric, chromatographic and other instrumental techniques will be explored with an emphasis placed on sample preparation. Students taking the course will be challenged to identify and quantify unknown analytes present in a sample. The course includes three lecture and three laboratory hours per week. Prerequisites: CHE-112 and CHE-221.
