CHE 2208 - Chemical Analysis in Forensics, Health and the Environment

Credits: 4.0
An introduction to physico-chemical principles and techniques underlying a wide range of modern analytical methods used in chemistry. Such methods are applied in areas as diverse as forensics, archeology, environmental monitoring, and space science. Topics include chromatographic methods for the separation of complex mixtures, application of modern electrochemical and spectroscopic techniques to analytical problems, and methods for assessing the reliability of results. The associated laboratory is an integral part of this course. It comprises two components: guided inquiry experiments, and open inquiry experiments. The guided inquiry experiments illustrate major analytical techniques to students. The open inquiry experiments involve students designing and undertaking experiments on biologically and environmentally related analytical themes. Course includes 4-hour laboratory.
Prerequisites Chemistry 1102 or 1104
