CHEM-329   Instrumental Meth for Chem/Bio Sciences

The aim of this course is to expose students to several instrumental techniques in chemistry, biochemistry, and biotechnology. The course will cover the principles underlying common instrumental spectroscopic techniques. A combination of lecture and laboratory will cover a number of instrumental techniques. In lab, students will examine how instruments work and their performance characteristics. Several weeks of the laboratory session will be devoted to an independent project which will use a minimum of two instruments. Laboratory. Prerequisite: Chemistry 201.
