CHM410H Analytical Environmental Chemistry

TitleCHM410H Analytical Environmental Chemistry
Schedule2 lectures
3.5 labs
TopicsCHM410H is an analytical theory, instrumental, and methodology course focused on the measurement of trace concentrations of pollutants in soil, water, air, and biological tissues. The course will begin with techniques involved with obtaining a representative sample, data analysis and handling, and a detailed look at sample preparation (extraction, clean-up, concentration, derivitization) which will be followed by extensive theory and application of the techniques of gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, immunochemistry, atomic spectrophotometry, electrochemistry, and mass spectrometry. Discussion sessions will pursue integrative material. Lab sessions will allow students to directly apply lecture material in hands-on experimentation using all the modern analytical instrumentation utilized in modern measurement science. The lab sessions will utilize the new ANALEST facility featuring state-of-the-art gas, liquid, and ion chromatographs, atomic absorption, and inductively coupled plasma emission (ICP) spectrophotometry. Students will be involved in field measurements as part of the laboratory exercise.
