This course builds on students' existing background in analytical chemistry to develop both theory and practice relating to the latest analytical techniques used in industry and research. The course covers in general, method validation and quality assurance in the analytical chemistry laboratory; and for selected major techniques, method development, theory, operation, instrumentation and applications. Analytical methods covered include separation techniques (chromatography), mass spectrometry, hyphenated chromatography-mass spectrometry techniques, electrochemistry, NMR (including 2D NMR), and elemental analysis, which are amongst the most widely used analytical instrumental techniques across a broad range of disciplines and in many different industries. The course was designed in close consultation with industry leaders (who will also give guest lectures) to provide valuable perspectives from outside academia and provide focus on the most relevant occupational skills. Students will obtain hands-on experience using state-of-the art, instruments in the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre. Thus, the course strongly emphasises employability in both industry, government and academy.
