    Overview
    Analytical chemistry takes a prominent position among all fields of experimental sciences, ranging from fundamental studies of Nature to industrial or clinical applications. Analytical chemistry covers the fundamentals of experimental and analytical methods and the role of chemistry around us.

    This course introduces the principles of analytical chemistry and provides how these principles are applied in chemistry and related disciplines - especially in life sciences, environmental sciences and geochemistry.

    This course, regardless of your background, will teach you fundamental analytical concepts and their practical applications.

    By the end of the course, you will deeply understand analytical methodologies in a systematic manner. Finally, this course will help you develop critical, independent reasoning that you can apply to new problems in chemistry and its related fields.

    This course is for anyone interested in analytical sciences.

    What you'll learn
    • A basic background in the chemical principles, particularly important to analytical chemistry
    • The ability to judge the accuracy and precision of experimental data and to show how these judgments can be sharpened by the application of statistical methods
    • A wide range of techniques that are useful in modern analytical chemistry
    • The skills needed to solve analytical problems in a quantitative manner
    • Laboratory skills to obtain high-quality analytical data
