CHM 265 - Analytical Chemistry


Analytical Chemistry serves as an introduction to laboratory techiques with an emphasis on quantitate data gathering and analysis.  By course end, the student should be able to identify the appropriate laboratory technique to solve several types of chemistry problems, thoroughly explain the implementation of several techniques, statistically analyze data, and communicate results in standard scientific research paper format.  Techniques investigated include atomic spectroscopy, gas chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, gravimetric analysis, mass spectrometry, and spectrophotometry, as well as several titration and electrochemical techniques.

Prerequisite- Corequisite
Prerequisites:  CHM 146 and 146L General Chemistry II and General Chemistry II Laboratory, with a minimum grade of "D", MAT 136 College Algebra and Trigonometry, with a minimum grade of "D"

Course Profile
Learning Outcomes of the Course:

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

1.  Describe the basic scientific principles for following techniques:  atomic spectroscopy, gas chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, gravimetric analysis, mass spectrometry, spectrophotometry, as well as several titration and electrochemical techniques.
2.  Perform standard laboratory calculations.
          a.  Carry uncertainty through calculations
3.  Calibrate standard laboratory equipment, such as burets and pipets.
4.  Collect data during laboratory exercises using select techniques discussed in lecture.
5.  Keep a well-organized laboratory notebook which thoroughly documents laboratory experiments.
6.  Analyze laboratory data for meaning.
          a.  Use electronic spreadsheet programs (example: Microsoft Excel)
          b.  Use appropriate statistical analysis to identify insignificant outlying data and determine relative and absolute uncertainty in results
7.  Report results which agree with anticipated results, within specified tolerances.
8.  Write complete laboratory reports which follow the reporting format used in scientific publications.
