Analytical Chemistry

This course provides postgraduate education in analytical chemistry, a specialism which is a major source of employment for scientists. Analytical chemistry involves the identification and measurement of chemicals, be they in industrial processes, humans or materials. This course will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the most recent technological developments and applications in analytical chemistry. Instrumental techniques used in the analysis of organic compounds, metals, solids, etc. are all covered. Possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis are discussed, thus allowing the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data There is the opportunity to study a specialised module in the area of biochemical analysis or pharmaceutical analysis. Considerable emphasis is placed on independent learning. You will be taught through weekly lectures, workshops and practical laboratory classes. Additional leaning materials are provided on the University's VLE.
