Instrumental Analysis

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The course provides an introduction to instrumental analysis with focus on the entire analytical process from raw sample to calculated result.

Learning outcome

The students will learn:
- General organic chemistry (solvents, solubility, buffers)
- Quantitative and qualitative analysis (units, calibration, calculations and validation)
- Sample preparation (mechanical and chemical)
- Organic analysis and briefly inorganic analysis
- Detectors and detector principles
- Separation science (separation principles, gas chromatography and liquid chromatography)
Students will be introduced to general sample preparation techniques as well as the principles of instrumental analysis and to construction of modern analytical instruments. Topics within general organic chemistry, calculations, calibration and method validation will give students insight in the analytical process from raw sample to final result. Instrumental methods covered are: Atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy, UV-VIS-spectroscopy, fluorescence-spectroscopy, IR-spectroscopy, mass spectrometry (MS), gas chromatography (GC), liquid chromatography (HPLC) and immunoaffinity methods.

Required prerequisite knowledge

General chemistry, and basic statistics.

Undergraduate laboratory courses.

Recommended previous knowledge

General chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry and basic statistics.

Experience in basic laboratory work and some analytical chemistry laboratory work.

Exam

Written exam and laboratory exercises
Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written exam3/44 hoursA - FNo printed or written materials are allowed. Approved basic calculator allowed.
Laboratory exercises1/4 A - F
Both the practical part and the exam has to be passed to pass the course. Practical work from previous years may be accepted.

Coursework requirements

Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published on Canvas. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated to the laboratory personnel as soon as possible. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times can be made, unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having the reports approved will result in barring from taking the final course exam.

Open to

The course is available for master students in Biological Chemistry, Environmental Engineering and Environmental Monitoring in the Northern Regions.

Other students may be accepted as long as they fulfill the admission requirements, and there is available capacity in the lab part of the course.

Course assessment

Usually by forms and/or discussion according to university regulations

Literature

The course has traditionally been based on Skoog, Holler og Nieman: Principles of instrumental analysis, 7th. Ed., Handouts.
The exact syllabus and curriculum will be announced in August 2019 on Canvas.
