REQUIRED TEXT / MANUALS
Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry, Skoog/West/Holler, Thomson, Latest edition
Study of advanced topics in instrumentation analysis. Topics include atomic absorption, inductively coupled plasma, nuclear magnetic resonance, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography, and infrared spectroscopy..
The student will prepare and analyze samples; calibrate, operate, and maintain instruments; interpret data; describe operating principles of chemical instrumentation; and explain the operating principles and theory of chemical instrumentation.
This course is designed to give the student an understanding in the operation and care of instruments used in chemical laboratories.
- To give the student an understanding of basic theory involved in the principles of chemical instrumentation.
- To teach the student to operate chemical instruments.
- To teach the student t set up and calibrate instruments used in the chemical laboratory.
- To emphasize the safe use of chemical instrumentation.
- To teach the student to solve spectral problems as they related to gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, infrared spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry and ultraviolet spectrometry.

Lab Grade = Average of Labs
The quiz average will be calculated with the two lowest quiz grade not included in the average. Quizzes may not be made up if missed. The two dropped quiz grades are used to compensate for this. Major tests not taken on the announced test date will be recorded as a zero for grade computation purposes. Major tests may not be made up if missed.
A minimum grade of D must be made in both the lecture and laboratory component. If either component is below a D, a final grade of F will be assigned regardless of the final grade.
The final letter grade is based on the final grade:
90 - 100 = A
80 - 89 = B
70 - 79 = C
60 - 69 = D
below 60 = F
Refer to current Chemical Technology attendance policy.
The student must be present for all tests, quizzes, and assignments. Failure to attend will result in a grade of zero for that particular test, quiz or assignment.
