    CHEM S311 Analytical Chemistry introduces students to the different aspects of analytical chemistry. After completion of this course, students will be able to better understand the role of analytical chemistry in the environmental, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries.

    Advisory prerequisite(s)
    SCI S121/SCI S124 and CHEM S251

    This course aims to:

    • Elaborate on the importance of analytical chemistry in chemical, biological and biochemical investigations.
    • Introduce statistics as a significant tool in evaluating sampling error as well as the validity of analytical data.
    • Describe sample pretreatment methods which convert raw samples into analytical samples suited for the measurements to obtain chemical information with higher accuracy and precision.
    • Introduce commonly-used classical methods to characterize analytical samples.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Concepts in analytical chemistry and calculations
    • Measurement, error, and significant figures
    • Sampling and standards in chemical analysis
    • Sample pretreatment and separation
    • Some classical methods in chemical analysis

    Learning support
    There will be regular tutorials and surgeries throughout the course. Regular laboratory sessions will also be arranged during the course where tutors and supervisors will guide you through the experiments related to the course content.

    Continuous assessment will include two assignments. The final examination will address the learning outcomes intended for completion of this course. Students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).
