This unit builds upon prior chemical knowledge, in relation to spectroscopy and separation science, and introduces the fundamental principles and applications of certain analytical techniques, which are at the cutting edge of instrumental development. Additionally, there is a significant emphasis on the utilisation of such techniques for solving real problems in chemical measurement. Areas of study will include: luminescence spectroscopy; atomic emission spectroscopy; flow injection and sequential injection analysis; and mass spectrometry.


Three in-class tests 20% each (60%), practical problem solving task 15%, poster presentation 25%
