Lecturers: Dr. Allen (first-half) (firstDr. Gustafson (second-half) (secondDr. Allen's Office: Room 3105 in Newman & Wolfrom (100 W. 18th Ave) My website will be used for distribution of some materials for the first half of the course: the http://www.chemistry.ohio-state.edu/~allen/courses.htm http://www.chemistry.ohioWebCT will be used throughout the quarter for posting grades: https://webct.mps.ohio-state.edu/webct/public/home.pl https://webct.mps.ohioemail: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org: 292-4707 292- Homework: Weeks 1& 2
Chapters 1 & 3, all even numbered problems
answers are in the back of the book fully worked-out answers are in the solutions manual
HW is not collected, but highly recommended! Introduction to analytical chemistry
What is analytical chemistry?
Qualitative Versus Quantitative What do we want to know? Do we need to obtain the sample? Do we need to pretreat the sample? Do we need to separate the sample from its matrix? Make the appropriate measurement! Will we need to use optical spectroscopy, gravimetric analysis, mass spectroscopy? Laboratory technique is critically important! For example: Presentation of the Data
We need to present the data in a logical manner,
and in a way that allows us to interpret the data accurately. Review of Fundamentals
