CRN: 21106 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Victoria C. Ewbank-Popescu Principles and techniques of operation of modern chemical instrumentation not covered in CHEM 300. Topics include the capabilities, limitations and data interpretation of advanced optical spectroscopies (luminescence, Raman, etc.), voltammetry, potentiometry, differential scanning calorimetry, thermal gravimetric analysis and mass spectrometry. Fundamentals of signal processing, basic circuitry and optical components are also included. The laboratory consists of both structured exercises and a student designed project and report based on an industrial problem or on an analysis problem of interest to the student. Lecture plus four hours of lab each week. Offered spring semester. Prerequisites: CHEM 202, 300
