CH 205 - Quantitative Analysis

CH 205 - Quantitative Analysis

4.00 Cr
A detailed study of analytical chemistry focusing on classical methods of chemical analysis in systems at equilibrium. Topics covered include measurement and concentration, experimental error and uncertainty in chemical analysis, statistical analysis of laboratory data, solubility equilibria, acid-base reactions, oxidation-reduction chemistry, complexometric reactions, phase equilibrium, activity, electrochemistry, potentiometry, and the interaction of light with matter. These areas are studied in the context of analytical laboratory techniques, including volumetric analysis, titrimetry, gravimetry, chromatography and spectrophotometry. Basic issues of chemical hygiene are also covered. The laboratory stresses good laboratory technique through the quantitative analysis of unknown samples by classical and modern methods. Three 50-minute lectures and one 4-hour laboratory per week.
