Ａｎａｌｙｔｉｃａｌ Ｃｈｅｍｉｓｔｒｙ （Ｃｌａｓｓｉｃａｌ Ａｎａｌｙｓｉｓ）
In all fields of science and technology, we treat various natural and artificial substances. Analytical chemistry is the academic area to explore what kind of chemical species are included in the substances and how many amounts of the species are included. Nowadays, many scientists and engineers use instruments for the analysis of chemicals. However, reliable results are only obtained if they know the concepts how we handle the samples correctly and how we interpret the measured values. Following the curriculum policy and diploma policy of our Department, the goal of this lecture is to obtain the ability to understand and utilize the ideas of analytical chemistry essentially.
Handling of measurement values, concepts for acids, bases, equilibrium, precipitate, and classical but important analytical techniques such as acid-base titration, ion exchange, solvent extraction, chromatography, and so forth.
