CHEM-201 Analytical Chemistry
Features a problem-solving approach that incorporates sampling, sample preparation, separation of the analyte from interfering substances, measurement, data analysis, and interpretation. Quantitative analysis is presented in the context of analytical methods that primarily include separation science (gas, liquid, ion chromatography, and electrophoresis), optical spectroscopy (uv-visible, fluorescence, and atomic absorption spectroscopy), and electrochemistry (electrode potentials, ion-selective electrodes, and sensors). The laboratory includes chemical analysis of water in the athletic field and nature preserve ponds, and the measurement of air quality across Calvin?s campus using modern analytical techniques and wet chemical methods. These methods illustrate the principles of complex equilibria, theory of acids and bases, and titrations. Laboratory. Prerequisite: Chemistry 104. Not open to seniors except by permission.
