Analytical science (6 points)


Leader: Dr Peter Junk

Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: Future advances in analytical science will involve the development and exploitation of automation and robotics, networks of instruments, intelligent instruments, on-line sensors and miniaturised systems, advanced remote sensing, and the development of total analysis systems. A large proportion of this unit concentrates on the basis and application of three principal approaches to analysis, viz, electroanalysis, molecular spectroscopy and analytical separations. The remaining quarter of the unit focuses on the use and advantage of automated hybrid forms of these techniques and their applications in a variety of industrial, clinical and environmental situations.

Assessment: One 2-hour examination: 60% + Assignments and computer testing: 10% + Laboratory work and laboratory reports: 30%

Contact Hours: Two 1-hour lectures, one 1-hour tutorial and the equivalent of 3 hours laboratory activity per week

Prerequisites: 12 points of level-one chemistry and normally CHM2922 and 6 other points of level-two chemistry, students without these should consult the coordinator

Prohibitions: permission if completed CHM3031, CHM3042, CHM3051 or CHM3062
