CHE 431 Advanced Laboratory
A laboratory-oriented presentation of various advanced concepts in chemical instrumentation. Experiments dealing with basic analog and digital electronics will stress measurement techniques and the construction and testing of simple, yet useful, circuits. The use of laboratory computers will be considered, with emphasis on data collection (interfacing) and manipulation. These topics are then integrated into discussion and experiments dealing with instrumental analysis (electrochemistry, spectroscopy). Individual projects will involve the construction/characterization of analytical instruments. One discussion and one laboratory each week. This course is offered in the fall semester.
Prerequisite: Chemistry 331 or permission of instructor.
