Description

When you enroll for courses through Coursera you get to choose for a paid plan or for a free plan

  • Free plan: No certicification and/or audit only. You will have access to all course materials except graded items.
  • Paid plan: Commit to earning a Certificate—it's a trusted, shareable way to showcase your new skills.

If chemistry is the science of stuff, then analytical chemistry answers the question: what is it? And how much of it do you have? This advanced chemistry course covers the basics of quantitative analysis and analytical chemistry in a one semester format.

About the Course

Analytical chemistry is an advanced topic introduced to chemistry majors often in their sophomore year. It is a broad area that covers what I refer to as ‘old school’ principles of solution phase chemistry and quantitative analysis, as well as more current treatments that introduce a suite of modern analytical instrumentation. In this course, both areas are covered in an integrated curriculum that emphasizes real-world exam…

About the Course

Analytical chemistry is an advanced topic introduced to chemistry majors often in their sophomore year. It is a broad area that covers what I refer to as ‘old school’ principles of solution phase chemistry and quantitative analysis, as well as more current treatments that introduce a suite of modern analytical instrumentation. In this course, both areas are covered in an integrated curriculum that emphasizes real-world examples of analytical problems. Students who complete this class will see their knowledge of fundamental chemistry strengthened as they work with familiar ideas from freshman chemistry (e.g. acids and bases, solubility, electrochemistry, stoichometry) to solve analysis problems. They will also be introduced to the instrumentation of analytical chemistry, with a particular emphasis on chromatography, and learn to apply these tools to problems in medicine, manufacturing, materials science and even food chemistry.

About the Instructor(s)

Vicki Colvin is the Kenneth S. Pitzer-Schlumberger Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Rice University. Most recently, she has served as the Director of the Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN), which was one of the nation's first nanoscience and engineering centers. Vicki's current research explores how nanoscale particles interact with the environment and living systems. She has received accolades for her teaching abilities including the Phi Beta Kappa's Teaching Prize (1998-1999) and the Camille Dreyfus Teacher Scholar Award (2002). In 2007, Vicki was named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world's largest general scientific society, and in early 2011, she was named a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. In 2012 she was recognized as one of the most highly cited researchers in the ACS journal Chemistry of Materials. She is an author on over one hundred papers and holds multiple patents in the area of nanotechnology.

Recommended Background

You should be familiar with freshman chemistry including balancing chemical equations, chemical equilibria, acid and base chemistry, stoichiometric calculations, reduction and oxidation chemistry and interaction of light with matter.

Suggested Readings

This course is loosely based on Skoog, West, Holler and Crouch, Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry, 8th edition.

Course Format

There will be two lectures (80 minutes each), a problem set, and an interactive quiz each week. There will also be two exams after 10 lectures and after 20 lectures.
