CHEM-201   Analytical Chemistry

Features a problem-solving approach that incorporates sampling, sample preparation, separation of analytes from interfering substances, measurement and data analysis interpretation. Quantitative analysis is presented in the context of analytical methods that include statistics of sample measurements (significance tests, outlier tests, linear regression), separation science (gas, liquid, ion chromatography, and capillary electrophoresis), optical spectroscopy (uv-visible, fluorescence, and atomic absorption spectroscopy), and electrochemistry (electrode potentials, ion-selective electrodes, and sensors). The laboratory includes project(s) related to quantitative chemical analysis. Laboratory. Prerequisite: Chemistry 104 or 105 with a grade of C or approval of the instructor. Not open to seniors except by permission.
