Instrumental Analytical Methods, 15 Credits
Analytical Chemistry has developed into a sophisticated applied area in chemistry and is dependent on modern equipment and advanced data processing. The field of mass spectrometry has grown during the last decades and plays a central role in quantitative and qualitative analytical analysis. Knowledge of mass spectrometric techniques and methods are of great importance in various fields, such as assessment of environmental impact, in forensic science and in the pharmaceutical sector.
The course covers the theory of various mass analyzers and hyphenated techniques such as GC-MS, GC-MS/MS, LC-MS, LC-MS/MS and ICP-MS as well as interpretation of mass spectra data. Laboratory exercises where hyphenated techniques are used are included in the course as well as speciation and quality assurance. After completing the course you are familiar with mass spectrometric techniques and methods and know how to interpret MS data.
