Analytical/Bioanalytical Chemistry

Quantitative and qualitative techniques applied to univariate analytical, bioanalytical and/or environmental problems. Basic techniques of separation, spectroscopy, and electrochemistry are introduced through studies of chemical speciation and the activity of chemicals in aqueous solution and guided projects tailored to students’ interest areas. Laboratory included. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Scientific Investigation of the Natural World requirement.

Prerequisite: Chemistry & Biochemistry 108 and a 200 level science course.

Degree requirement — Critical Perspectives: I

1 unit — Brasuel, Fahrenkrug
