CHEM 5002 - High Performance Liquid Chromatographic Techniques

Chemistry Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

Covers the use of high performance liquid chromatographic techniques in chemical analysis. The course starts with a brief review of separation theory applied to liquid chromatographic separations. Subsequent sections of the course cover topics related to more advanced aspects of high performance liquid chromatography. Topics include maintenance of liquid chromatographs, optimizing high performance liquid chromatographic separations, preparative scale liquid chromatography and validation in liquid chromatography. Laboratory exercises provide practical training of the principles covered in the lectures.

Prerequisite(s)

CHEM 5000 or CHEM 6609 or an equivalent introductory analytical chemistry course.
