Analytical science is the term given to the study of determination and measurement of substances, both artificial and natural. It is of fundamental importance to modern society, from the tests performed to check the purity of food and medicines, to the daily monitoring of industrial wastes and the analysis of evidence in the forensic laboratory, we see, use and benefit from analytical science every day. The ever-increasing demand for more detailed and accurate data means that trained analytical scientists are always in demand.
This subject examines 'what analytical scientists do' using case study material from fields such as manufacturing quality control, food science and environmental analysis. A mix of classical analytical methods as well as modern spectroscopic techniques will be covered, giving students a firm grounding in this fascinating subject.
