CHM317H Introduction to Instrumental Methods of Analysis

TitleCHM317H Introduction to Instrumental Methods of Analysis
Schedule2 lectures
4 labs
TopicsCHM317S continues to cover the principles of instrumental analytical chemistry, first introduced with respect to absorption spectroscopy in CHM217F. The course will begin by reviewing the scope of use of instruments in chemical analysis and the theory and applications of ultraviolet/visible, infrared and atomic absorption spectroscopy.
Further techniques to be discussed will be Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy; Raman spectroscopy; spectrofluorimetry; X-ray fluorescence; mass spectrometry and ion sources for mass spectrometry; the gas chromatography - mass spectroscopy interface; principles of surface characterization, vacuum ultraviolet and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; Auger electron emission spectroscopy, secondary ion mass spectrometry; separation techniques including gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography. In all these topics selected applications will be outlined in addition to the basic theory and instrumentation.
