Theory, operation, and application of modern analytical instruments used in chemical analysis and research. Selected topics include molecular, atomic, and mass spectroscopies; electrochemistry; chromatography, and sensors. Designed to acquaint student with modern laboratory techniques used in all areas of chemistry. Course includes lecture and lab. Students will develop a lab of their choosing (with instructor approval) incorporating analytical metrics of precision, accuracy, selectivity, and sensitvity as well as develop experiments and questions that relate theory to experimental data. Recommendations: CHEM 31, 42, and 51, or permission of instructor.
