Courses and Descriptions

CHEM-1008Applied Chemistry Techniques

In this course, students will perform quantitative and qualitative analyses using classic wet chemistry methods. They will learn how to accurately prepare samples and standards and use various reagents, glassware and apparatuses. Students will be introduced to standard identification tests for various chemical species and will be taught gravimetric and titrimetric techniques.

Through theory and practice, students will reinforce their understanding of basic chemistry concepts related to laboratory work, including: communicating concentration (such as molarity), stoichiometry and balanced reaction equations, naming chemical compounds, reaction equilibrium, and the fundamentals of acids and bases (pH, neutralization reactions, and strong/weak acids). They will also be taught how to apply these principles to perform the calculations necessary to derive results from test data.
