Modern analytical and physical chemistry laboratory techniques. Emphasis on statistical methods, chemical thermodynamics, chromatography, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, report writing, scientific methodology, and laboratory safety.

Students that have taken CH 452 without having already completed Quantitative Analysis (CH 315) and its laboratory companion (CH 316) have struggled without having the foundation in the fundamental principles and modern techniques of chemical analyses presented in the earlier courses. In addition to this, CH 452 is designed as a lab that incorporates both traditional “analytical” chemistry experiments and “physical” chemistry experiments. Due to the lack of available lecture time in CH 452 to explain concepts from our 400-level analytical (CH 415) and physical (CH 431 and CH 433) courses, it is appropriate for these courses to serve as complementary pre- and/or co-requisite courses for this advanced lab course.

Student Learning Outcomes

1) Demonstrate proficiency with techniques and instruments used in analytical and physical chemistry.


2) Apply the principles of Analytical and Physical chemistry to experimental results.


3) Demonstrate safe and effective laboratory practice, including the use of a lab notebook.


4) Process measured data by graphical, statistical and other means.


5) Demonstrate the concepts of precision, accuracy, stability and absence of outliers in the interpretation of experimental data.


6) Design experiments to identify and/or quantify chemical systems.


7) Report scientific observations and conclusions, both in written and oral form.


8) Collaborate with other scientists.


Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Lab Report58%Two lab reports at 5% each, and six lab reports at 8% each.
Quiz16%Eight quizzes at 2% each.
Project26%The project consists of designing and carrying out a research project, a written report, and an oral presentation.
