This course is the second (of two) in a series designed to give students a solid foundation in analytical chemistry. Topics covered this quarter include complex equilibria and how they affect measurements, potentiometry, advanced separations, x-ray methods, and method development.
Students will view asynchronous video lectures and engage in weekly discussion and problem-solving sessions. Alternative assignments will allow students to earn comparable credit if conditions or illness prevent them from accessing synchronous meetings.
Each student will receive four in-person sessions to allow them to receive instrument training on the inductively-coupled plasma-mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) and to run environmental samples. These sessions take place outside of scheduled class time; please contact instructor for more information.
one year of general chemistry with lab; pre-calculus; analytical chemistry I or equivalent
