Minor in Food Bioscience - Instrumental Analysis CHMA 4003   Instrumental Analysis
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course will equip the non-chemistry major with an understanding of the principles of chromatography, spectroscopy and electrochemistry, and their application in the analysis of agricultural, environmental and food samples. Students will be introduced to the method selection criteria used by scientists to evaluate an analytical method or to troubleshoot and develop new ones. Students will also have a hands-on experience on the use of analytical instruments including liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography, atomic absorption spectrophotometry, and UV-visible spectrophotometry. Laboratory sections will involve sample preparation and analysis, data interpretation and prorper laboratory techniques with these analytical instruments.
