CHEM2464 - Advanced Applications of Instrumental Analysis
This course emphasizes the role of the computer in the laboratory and advanced analytical laboratory methods utilizing computer controlled instrumentation. Topics covered include the function and application of the computing integrator and data system in chromatography and an overview of computer control of instrumental functions in various instruments. Major emphasis is directed toward the role of the computers in GC mass spectrometry and Fourier Transform infrared spectrometry applications. The hardware and software considerations involved in the interfacing of instruments to a computer, the operation of local area networks and the use of LIMS systems are explored. Lab work in gas and liquid chromatography, utilizing a variety of detectors, includes capillary GC and integrator applications in GC and HPLC. The functions of the integrator are thoroughly examined, and include the generation of custom reports. Experiments in flameless atomic absorption, ICP-MS, GC-MS, HPLC-MS and FT-IR spectrometry are also performed.
Prerequisite: CHEM2361. Co-requisite: CHEM2463. This course is available to Open Studies students.
