CHEM 2204 - Chemical Laboratory Techniques

Chemistry Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

This hands-on laboratory course teaches a range of chemical laboratory techniques that a lab analyst must master in order to carry out chemical analyses with accuracy and precision. The student will learn the proper laboratory techniques to calibrate and use glassware and dispensers. The student will learn the different weighing methods and proper weighing techniques. The student will learn proper techniques associated with gravity filtration, preparation of a standard solution and carrying out a titration. Through practice of these techniques, the student will develop skills to master these techniques when carrying out chemical analysis of natural samples by using methods such as moisture and ashing, gravimetric separations and analysis, volumetric separation and analysis, acid-base, redox and complexometric determinations, ion exchange separation and analysis, spectrophotometric analysis, and various solvent extractions.

Gravitying Outcomes

The main course objective is for students to be able to handle the analysis of samples, which are more ‘industrial' or ‘natural' than the ‘pure' samples that are an inherent part of many first year courses. There is an underlying emphasis on the removal of interfering substances from the natural samples before the final analysis.

On completion, the student will be able to integrate into industrial analysis positions because of his/her ability to carry out routine and more advanced laboratory operations and analysis. The student will be able to convert a heterogenous bulk sample to a homogenous laboratory sample and complete a variety of analyses using fundamental techniques and procedures including, among other procedures, use of the muffle furnace, various oxidation procedures, filtrations, separations, chemical masking, gravimetric, volumetric, ion exchange, complexometric, spectrophotometric, and chromatographic analysis. The ability to carry out various tests involving the viscometer, hydrometer and a variety of solvent extraction techniques are also an integral part of the course. The student should also be able to deal with inherent sources of error and complete the necessary calculations to achieve the final result of the analysis.
