Learning objectives


Students who have passed the module should be able to

  • Explain the fundamental physical principles governing selected apparatus for instrumental chemical analysis, including chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques
  • Explain the fundamental physical principles forming the basis for alternatives to the selected instrumental chemical analysis methods
  • Account for the chemistry that forms the basis of sample preparation for the above selected instrumental chemical analysis techniques
  • Account for spectroscopic methods that may be utilized for qualitative analysis of various organic, inorganic or organometallic substances


  • Perform relevant stoichiometric calculations and use common glassware in the laboratory
  • Perform analytical chemical experiments based on written instructions and achieve a reproducible result
