Courses

CHEM 230:  Chemical Analysis and Equilibrium

This course is the second semester of the introductory course for those students planning a science major. Concepts include the following: equilibria in aqueous solutions, stoichiometry of analytical reactions, criteria for choosing appropriate methods, electrochemistry, kinetic methods, transition metal chemistry, and spectroscopy. Laboratory experiments are designed to demonstrate the previous concepts and to make students more proficient in the elementary techniques of analytical chemistry.

CHEM 330:  Instrumental Analysis

Introduction to basic theory and applications of modern instrumental methods of analysis. Includes an introduction to electronics, ultraviolet, visible, infrared, mass, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry; atomic absorption and flame emission; chromatography, electrochemical, and radio-chemical methods.
