CVB212 Industrial Analytical Chemistry

Modern chemical industry requires comprehensive analytical measurement relating to the raw materials, process streams and outputs in order to control quality and to confer error prevention. This unit develops your knowledge and application of the fundamental principles of Analytical Chemistry upon which modern industrial analysis techniques are based.  This unit is complementary to the more empirical approach adopted in “CVB202 Analytical Chemistry”, providing you with grounding in the theory and practice of qualitative, quantitative gravimetric and wet chemical analysis; together with spectrometric and electrochemical methods of analysis for a wide range of industrial applications including foods and beverages, mining, metals, waste waters and related areas. This unit develops your theoretical and applied knowledge of chemical analysis and further develops your technical and laboratory skills in sample treatment, gravimetric and wet chemical methods of analysis. It links to work undertaken in CVB101 General Chemistry, prepares you for the 3rd year unit CVB320 Instrumental Analysis and the final semester major capstone unit CVB304 Chemistry Research Project, as well as a career in a chemically-based industry or industry-related research.
