Hours & Credits
Analytical chemistry is the study of the separation, identification and quantification of chemical compounds and elements. It underpins forensic science, clinical analysis, environmental analysis and many industries such as mining and manufacturing.
In this subject students develop the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for a future career as an analytical chemist in forensic science, the pharmaceutical industry and other industrial enterprises in which high-level analytical skills are required. The subject introduces the major analytical instrumental techniques and methods: high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC); ion chromatography (IC); gas chromatography (GC); capillary electrophoresis (CE); and spectrometric techniques for elemental analysis such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and microwave plasma atomic emission spectrometry (MP-AES). Students develop sample preparation approaches for each of these instrumental techniques including solid phase extraction and liquid–liquid extraction, method validation strategies and statistical evaluations of analytical data.
Course is typically offered during the Spring semester
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
