CHEM 5327. ANALYTICAL ELECTROCHEMISTRY. 3 Hours.
This course covers modern aspects of electroanalytical chemistry. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: understand the concepts of redox potentials and their role in electron transfer, the thermodynamic aspects of electrochemical cells, mass transport in electrochemical systems, and the principles underlying various electroanalytical techniques such as potentiometry, amperometry, coulometry and voltammetry. The instrumental aspects of these techniques will also be addressed, including specialized approaches such as spectroelectrochemistry. The student will be able to relate the use of these analytical techniques to his or her own research needs and interests. Written and oral examinations, as well as traditional classroom examinations, will be used to assess student performance. Prerequisite: CHEM 4461 or equivalent; or permission of instructor.
