Analytical Chemistry

This course explores analytical chemistry, the branch of chemistry dealing with measurement, both qualitative and quantitative. This discipline is also concerned with the chemical composition of samples. In the field, analytical chemistry is applied when detecting the presence and determining the quantities of chemical compounds, such as lead in water samples or arsenic in tissue samples. It also encompasses many different spectrochemical techniques, all of which are used under various experimental conditions. This branch of chemistry teaches the general theories behind the use of each instrument as well as analysis of experimental data. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Chemistry 108)
