FORENSIC AND ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY

CHE2NAC

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Chemical analysis is widely used in forensic, pharmaceutical, and environmental science. In this subject you will learn about modern analytical chemistry skills, including the preparation and analysis of different types of real-world samples using a variety of instrumental techniques. In workshops and practical classes you will develop the ability to critically assess experimental results and judge their validity. The analytical techniques you will explore include electrochemistry, spectroscopy, chromatography, and atomic absorption and emission spectrometry.
