Understand the science behind making chemical measurements.
An introduction to the science of making chemical measurements. Learn the fundamentals of information and sample gathering, measuring, and minimizing experimental error. We’ll cover the elementary statistics needed to understand chemical measurements, followed by proper use of calibrations.
Explore the principles of how chromatographs achieve chemical separations, which will help optimize your analyses.
Lastly, we’ll cover the principles of spectroscopy, which form the basis for understanding how FTIR and UV/Vis spectrometers identify and quantify molecules. Exercises and homework are used to increase the retention of knowledge.
Anyone who works in a lab and makes chemical measurements of any type.
People who are new to making chemical measurements or who do not have formal training in analytical chemistry.
Managers and supervisors who need to understand better the measurements taking place in their labs will find this course a useful refresher.
