Prerequisites:CHEM 122 with a minimum grade of C-.
The principles of analytical chemistry and their practical application to solution samples. Titrimetric and electrochemical methods. This course has the same lecture component as CHEM 215 but no laboratory work. Students with credit for CHEM 215 may not take this course for further credit. Quantitative.
Please note, this course outline was accurate at the time of publication but is subject to change.
Mode of Teaching:
2 lecture hours/week (Tues & Thurs 10:30am -11:20am); 1 tutorial hour/week (Thurs 9:30am - 10:20am)
Lecture: In-person at Burnaby campus
Tutorial: In-person at Burnaby campus
The fundamental principles of analytical sciences are introduced in this course. The concepts of sampling, experimental uncertainty, statistical data analysis and calibration will be covered.
The concepts of solution equilbria (solubility, acid-base and complex) and activity will be covered. The principles of acid-base equilibria in solution are fully developed throughout the course. Complexing reaction equilibria involving metal ions and multidentate ligands are treated from the perspective of individual species measurement. Titrimetric and electroanalytical techniques (e.g. potentiometry, coulometry, and voltammetry) for solution species are discussed.
Two other analytical instrumentation methods: atomic spectroscopy, gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) will also be briefly introduced.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
Students with a faith background who may need accommodations during the semester are encouraged to assess their needs as soon as possible and review the Multifaith religious accommodations website. The page outlines ways they begin working toward an accommodation and ensure solutions can be reached in a timely fashion.
