6cp; 2hpw (lecture), 4hpw (practical)
Requisite(s): 65409 Analytical Chemistry 2


This subject expands and consolidates the knowledge and practical skills gained from 65409 Analytical Instrumentation 1 by revision of key concepts; introduction of advanced analytical techniques in lectures; and the undertaking of an analytical method development and analysis project performed over the session.

The advanced instrumental techniques lectures are based on cutting-edge research performed in the analytical laboratories and include bio-imaging by laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), mass spectrometry (MS), liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS), two-dimensional gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GCxGC-MS), lab-on-a-chip (LOC), microfluidics, hyphenated techniques, and Raman spectroscopy. Guest lectures from industry are presented by leading analytical vendors and employment agencies. The subject provides a solid foundation for placement in the workforce or a research-based career in chemistry and related sciences.
