CHEM 5324. ANALYTICAL MASS SPECTROMETRY AND SPECTROSCOPY. 3 Hours.
This course covers modern aspects of atomic and molecular mass spectrometry, as well as spectrochemical analysis. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: describe the basic setup and operation of mass spectrometric and spectroscopic instrumentation; interpret spectra from various instruments as a means for qualitative and quantitative analysis; apply basic knowledge of mass spectrometry and spectroscopy for practical problem solving; relate the use of mass spectrometry and spectroscopy to his or her own research interests; and compile, present, and explain modern techniques for analytical research. Written and oral presentations, as well as traditional classroom examinations, homework, and quizzes will be used to assess student performance. Prerequisite: CHEM 4461 or equivalent; or permission of instructor.
