CHEM 2303: ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY II

LECTURE 1 – INTRODUCTION, SAMPLE PREPARATION AND SPECTROPHOTOMETRY

WHY STUDY ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY?
To gain a knowledge of the methods and strategies that have
been developed to investigate the nature of the chemistry
around and within us.
To answer the age old questions:
What is it?
What is it made of?
How does it work?

We must learn the principles of chemical analysis
and the array of strategies that have been
developed to analyze chemistry.

HOW DO WE ANALYZE THE WORLD IN WHICH
WE LIVE?

Chemistry knowledge and theory is good…
…knowing how to redefine chemistry is better!
