CHM 218 Chemical Technology Laboratory II (3)

Second in a series of two laboratory- based courses designed for those seeking careers in chemical technology, this course involves investigations of separation science, chemical analysis, and measurement. Students are challenged by advanced trouble shooting problems and real-world client-employee scenarios encountered by chemical technicians in the chemical process industry. Topics include electrochemical and potentiometric measurements, basic separation techniques, chemical analysis of water and biochemical systems, applications and theory behind gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography, and selection and application of standard methods. Advanced topics of chemical health and safety (e.g., hazardous materials management and regulatory compliance) and advanced issues of good laboratory practices (GLPs) included.

Prerequisite: CHM 142. Co-requisite: CHM 215.
