Subject Title
Techniques in Analytical Chemistry

Subject Description
This subject focuses on the study of chromatography, and its application to analytical chemistry. Students will be provided with basic chromatographic fundamentals, upon which the basis for column chromatography, gas chromatography and liquid chromatography will be discussed. Considerable emphasis will be placed on the laboratory section, from which the student will gain experience on the chromatographic instrumentation, methods of analysis, sample preparation, and HP ChemStation?? software.

Credit Status
One credit towards the Chemical Engineering Technology program.

CHM 173, CHM 273, MTH 273

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will:
- have demonstrated an understanding of the basic chromatographic separation principles.
- have demonstrated a specific understanding of components and operation of column chromatographs, gas chromatographs (GC) and high performance liquid chromatographs (HPLC).
- be able to apply chromatographic principles to determine the identity of an analyte in a mixture.
