It will give the opportunity to study and use specialized instruments and specific methods to separate, identify, and quantify the unknown substance. Spectroscopic technique will consist of applications of atomic absorption spectroscopy, atomic emission spectroscopy, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and Mössbauer spectroscopy. In electrochemical methods cyclic voltammetry, coulometry and amperometry will be discussed. The course has applications that include forensic science, analysis of biological samples, clinical analysis, environmental analysis, and materials analysis.
