The course provides an introduction to instrumental analysis with main focus on atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy, UV/IR spectroscopy, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography (HPLC), mass spectroscopy.

Learning outcome

The student will gain theoretical knowledge of the physical principles behind the measurements and construction of modern analytical instruments. With this knowledge the student should be able to apply modern instrumentation in work an research with knowledge and competence after a short practical training.

The student will get knowledge about atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy, UV/IR/ spectroscopy, Gas chromatography, Liquid chromatography (HPLC) and Mass spectroscopy.

Required prerequisite knowledge

TN501 HSE-course for master students

Recommended previous knowledge

It is assumed that the students have basic knowledge in general-, analytical- and organic chemistry as well as physics.

Exam

Written exam and laboratory exercises
Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written exam3/44 hoursA - FNo printed or written materials are allowed. Approved basic calculator allowed.
Laboratory exercises1/4 A - F
Both the practical part and the exam has to be passed to pass the course. Practical work from previous years may be accepted.

Coursework requirements

Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published on Canvas. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated to the laboratory personnel as soon as possible. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times can be made, unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed.

Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the final course exam.

Open to

The course is available for all students in Environmental Engineering and Environmental Monitoring in the Northern Regions. Other students may be accepted as long as they fulfill the admission requirements, and there is available capacity in the lab part of the course.

Course assessment

Usually by forms and/or discussion according to university regulations

Literature

The course has been based on Skoog, Holler og Nieman: Principles of instrumental analysis, 7th. Ed., Handouts.

In 2018 the course will be heavily revised.  Books and curriculum will be advertised on Canvas at the beginning of the semester.
