Advanced analytical techniques including Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC), Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), Spectrophotometry, Molecular Fluorescence, and Mass Spectrometry (MS). Physical aspects including time resolved spectrophotometric measurement of kinetics, dynamic fluorescence quenching and resonance Raman spectroscopy. Students will also participate in carrying out a project through consultation with the instructor and search of the literature.

The course has been redesigned to present a broader range of techniques.  The course description now more accurately describes the experiments in which the students will participate.


The prerequisite is changed because this course is taught with the expectation that the students' analytical and physical chemistry background is sufficient and their technical writing skills have been developed. To ensure that this is the case, CH 452 is proposed as the only prerequisite to CH 454.

Requisites and Scheduling
 
a. If seats are restricted, describe the restrictions being applied.
 

 
b. Is this restriction listed in the course catalog description for the course?
 

 
List all course pre-requisites, co-requisites, and restrictive statements (ex: Jr standing; Chemistry majors only). If none, state none.
 

 
List any discipline specific background or skills that a student is expected to have prior to taking this course. If none, state none. (ex: ability to analyze historical text; prepare a lesson plan)
 

Additional Information
Complete the following 3 questions or attach a syllabus that includes this information. If a 400-level or dual level course, a syllabus is required.
 
Title and author of any required text or publications.
 

 
Major topics to be covered and required readings including laboratory and studio topics.
 

 
List any required field trips, out of class activities, and/or guest speakers.
 

The new experimental techniques use instrumentation that is already available in the department, so no additional resources will be required for the change to the course description or the prerequisite.

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 assignments15%Students must maintain a laboratory notebook that is checked periodically for completeness.
Participation5%Based on safe and proper laboratory practices.
Lab Report50%Seven reports of equal weighting.
Project30%Students design and carry out a research project, submit a written report and give an oral presentation.
