Analytical science is the study of the determination of the chemical composition of natural and artificial materials using both classical and modern instrumental techniques. This unit examines 'what analytical scientists do' using case study material from fields such as process and manufacturing quality control, forensic analysis, and environmental, materials and clinical analysis. Techniques covered cover important and fundamental aspects of traditional analytical techniques and modern spectroscopic methods.
You are recommended to have completed the following unit(s) or have equivalent knowledge before starting this unit:
- Assignment 1 — Sampling strategy (30%)
- Assignment 2 — Spectrochemical (30%)
- Assignment 3 — Calibration models (40%)
At the completion of this unit students will be able to:
- identify the wide range of applications areas in which analytical science plays a significant role
- apply the fundamentals of sampling
- use simple statistics to summarise analytical data
- apply appropriate calibration models to quantitative analysis
- use and apply quantitative spectrochemical techniques.
This unit addresses the following topics.
|1||The analytical sequence and basics of analysis|
|6||Some basic separations|
This unit is delivered using the following methods and materials:
- Online Quizzes/Tests
- Online assignment submission
- Standard Media
