Module overview

Analytical Chemistry is a measurement science consisting of a set of powerful ideas and methods that provide qualitative or quantitative information about the chemical composition of a sample. Analytical measurements are required in a wide range of fields beyond the chemical industry such as biochemistry and the pharmaceutical industry, environmental sciences, forensic sciences, and the food industry amongst others. The module will provide an introduction into the fundamentals of chemical analysis, including an understanding of sample preparation, chromatographic separations, and some of the most important analytical techniques today, including IR, NMR, Raman and UV-visible spectroscopies, and mass spectrometry.
