6cp; 2hpw (workshop, online), 3hpw (practical session)
Requisite(s): 65212 Chemistry 2 OR 65213 Chemistry 2 (Advanced)


In this subject students are introduced to key instrumental and statistical concepts, and develop the laboratory skills that underpin analytical chemistry. The subject presents statistical methods for data analysis, as well as theoretical and practical experience in standard analytical methods such as chromatography; mass spectrometry (MS); infra-red (IR) spectroscopy; ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy; and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Students gain an understanding of these techniques and become proficient in interpretation of their spectra to use for problem-solving strategies for elucidating the structure of unknown compounds. Students also become proficient in the statistical evaluations of an analytical data set.
