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
Chemistry knowledge and theory is good…
…knowing how to redefine chemistry is better!
OVERVIEW FOR TODAY’S LECTURE
COURSE OUTLINE: OVERVIEW
This course will introduce students to:
- Spectrophotometric analysis using UV-Vis, fluorescence and FTIR instrumentation along with recent techniques
- Applications of Mass Spectrometry
- Modern separation methods including CE, GC and LC.
We will investigate the application of these techniques to real-world analysis in:
- Biochemical and
- health-related research.

4. Come to class and take notes.
HOW TO DO WELL IN THIS COURSE
5. Review material throughout the term instead of trying to cram it all in before each test.
6. Do the assigned practice problems and utilize the solutions manual if possible. It is a very helpful study aid with step by step instructions to solving analytical chemistry problems.
7. Ask questions! You can always ask me or your lab TAs any questions you have about the course material, the lab, or resources available on campus to help...
