Course Description :

This course is designed to familiarize the students with various instrumental methods of chemical analysis that scientists and engineers come across during their course work and research undertakings.
The participants are introduced to the principles of chemical analysis, matrix effects, detailed instrumentation, operation and interpretation of data, error analysis and statistical methods of data handling.
At the end of the course the student would be able to handle the analysis of mg, ppm and ppb levels of analyte by appropriate instrumental methods.
Applications: Chemical analysis of hazardous materials, environmental samples, inorganic, organic and biomaterials at trace and ultra trace quantities.
Introduction to spectroscopic techniques.
