(Common Analytical Problems)
Much of the early work in analytical chemistry involved the development of simple chemical tests.
determining spatial distribution of Pb on surface of an airborne particulate
infrared (IR) spectroscopy
screening an athlete’s urine for the presence of a performance-enhancing drug
nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy
identifying products of a chem rxn
measuring concentration of glucose in blood
determining difference btw bulk & surface conc. of Cr in steel.
elemental analysis of a newly synthesized cpd
Involves development of new methods for characterizing physical &chemical properties
determinations of chem structure
Improves understanding of theory behind an analytical method.
studying an analytical method’s limitations
extending &improving the theory on which an analytical method is based
designing & modifying existing analytical method
