The schedule below outlines each day's main topic(s). Reading assignments from Analytical Chemistry 2.1 (listed as AC2.1), links to additional reading assignments, and links to useful files are listed after the topic; see below for a list of useful explanatory codes.

Getting Started

Unit One

In which we review selected topics from Chem 260, learn to visualize equilibrium systems and how to determine the composition of a system at equilibrium using mathematical models of varying complexity.

Unit Two

In which we a develop a general theory of analytical separations and use it to design separations based on liquid-liquid extractions.

Unit Three

In which we develop a general theory of chromatography and use it to optimize separations based on gas chromatography and liquid chromatography.
