CHEMICAL ANALYSIS

CHE2CAN

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Students are introduced to some advanced methods of chemical analysis that are commonly used in pharmaceutical and other applications. These include quantitative and qualitative classical and electrochemical methods, as well as some advanced applications of spectroscopy and chromatography. Detailed consideration is given to the limitations, interferences and problems that can be associated with the various analytical techniques. The principles underlying the treatment and preparation of samples are introduced. The focus is on applications to pharmaceutical analysis applications.
