CH 241 - Lab for CH 240

Credit Hours: 1.5

This laboratory course provides an introduction to the experimental techniques involved in quantitative chemical analysis.  Topics will include: volumetric determinations; potentiometric titrations; selective electrochemical analysis; spectrophotometric analysis; and chromatographic separation.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of the course the students should have practical hands on knowledge of the following chemical principles and be able to apply them to solve quantitative chemical problems:

  • statistical methods for chemical analysis;
  • computer use in the chemical laboratory;
  • aqueous solution chemistry;
  • titrimetric methods involving acid/base, complexation, and redox techniques; and
  • electrochemical methods such as potentiometry & electrogravimetry.
