Online Analytical Chemistry Course Introduction

Are you interested in the ground-breaking work of a chemist? Are you keen to better understand the world around us? Our Analytical Chemistry online course is just for you. Analytical chemistry explores what the chemical and biochemical world around us is made of, splitting substances apart to examine their constituent components. You will find it a very practical branch of chemistry with many important uses in fields as diverse as medicine, industry, astronomy, and police investigations. It is also what makes it such an exciting and enjoyable subject to study! This online course is ideal preparation if you are thinking of studying chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, and related subjects at university.

What's in the Analytical Chemistry On-Demand Course?

Course Summary

Analytical chemists use a range of methodologies to separate, identify and determine the relative quantity of components with the aim of establishing the make-up of a chemical substance. Having gone through an overview of the background of the subject first, you will subsequently focus on these methodologies, exploring their theoretical basis as well as how they are carried out in the real world, and what machinery is typically used in the laboratory. You will cover a range of methodologies such as chromatography, microscopy, spectroscopy, and electrochemical analysis, all of which are fundamental to the modern analytical chemist.

Topics Covered

During the course you will:

  • understand the fundamental concepts of analytical chemistry
  • gain an insight into the key methodologies used
  • understand the uses of analytical chemistry in the present day

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • understand when different analytical techniques might be used
  • discuss applications of analytical chemistry in the present day
  • understand how theory can be put into practice

What’s Included?

  • 4 x Interactive Tutorials
  • Online quizzes and exams
  • Access to the course discussion forum
  • Course worksheets and case studies
  • ORA Certificate of completion


Tutorial 1: What is Analytical Chemistry? (1 - 1.5 hours)

Tutorial 1 will begin with a definition of analytical chemistry before moving on to take a look at its historical development, from its very first uses up to the present day. It will then move on to explore quantitative and qualitative methodologies and the important differences between the two.

Tutorial 2: Instrumental Techniques I (1 - 1.5 hours)

This tutorial will focus on three fundamental techniques of analytical chemistry: spectroscopy, thermochemical, and electrochemical analysis. It will discuss the physical components of the instrumentation, how they work, and the scientific principles that underpin their workings.

Tutorial 3: Instrumental Techniques II (1 - 1.5 hours)

This tutorial will explore the techniques used to separate substances into their component parts, such as chromatography. As in the previous tutorial, the physical components of the instrumentation will be discussed in addition to the theoretical science behind them.

Tutorial 4: Instrumental Techniques III (1 - 1.5 hours)

Our last tutorial will finish with a look at our final method, microscopy, before concluding with a brief discussion of the modern ‘hybrid’ techniques that have been developed to make analysis as accurate and precise as possible in the 21st century.
