The course is based on Undergraduate Instrumental Analysis (6th ed.), by J.W. Robinson, E.M. Skelly Frame and G.M. Frame II (Marcel Dekker, 2005).
The aim of this course is to provide students with organized knowledge on underlying principles and methods of instrumentation.
Chapters: 1. Concepts of instrumental analytical chemistry; 2. Introduction to spectroscopy; 3. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy; 4. Infrared spectroscopy; 5. Visible and ultraviolet molecular spectroscopy; 6. Atomic absorption spectrometry; 7. Atomic emission spectroscopy; 8. X-ray spectroscopy; 9. Mass spectrometry I: Principles and instrumentation; 10. Mass spectrometry II: Spectral interpretation; 11. Principles of chromatography; 12. Gas chromatography; 13. Chromatography with liquid mobile phases.
