CHEM-311 Analytical Chemistry

Chemical species are analyzed by classical quantitative and modern spectrometric methods. Theory of equilibrium, potentiometric, optical, chromatographic and mass spectral techniques are discussed. Laboratories range from volumetric, gravimetric and potentiometric wet techniques to photospectrometric methods (Uv-vis, FT-IR, AA) and mass spectrometry. This class is specifically designed for the chemistry minor and does not count toward the chemistry major, the biochemistry major or as an elective. Prerequisites: CHEM-101-102, CHEM-103-104 or CHEM-111-112. 4 SH. 3 lecture hours, 3 laboratory hours.
