Course Purpose:
The purpose of this course is to widen the student analytical chemistry background
and expand his horizon as a young scientist. It provide student with technical and
intellectual skills and help him/her to be an independent thinker who can approach
problems from different directions. This course is a fundamental rich-content course
.that leads student to advance course in this discipline

Course Description:
Analytical chemistry course is the first analytical course. It provides students with a
wide background in a variety of analytical chemistry subjects. This includes the
importance of analytical chemistry as an applied branch of science, statistical analysis
of analytical data, volumetric analysis, types of chemical reactions in volumetric
analysis, ways of expressing concentration, neutralization reactions, pH calculations,
buffers, indicators, types of titrations, and redox reactions. A lot of emphasis will be
given to apply the analytical concepts in solving analytical problems. By enrolling in
this course, it is assumed that you have met the pre-requisite of analytical chemistry
(general chemistry 1&2) and have understand the major concepts of general
.chemistry. Make sure to go back and review the concepts that you may have forgot

Course Goals:
:After taking this course, student is expected to be able to
Understand the importance of analytical chemistry as an applied science to -1
solve real-world problems and appreciate the importance of the contribution of
.various scientists to this area of chemistry
Describe how to obtain an analytical sample and use statistics to evaluate analytical -2
Define the types of reactions involved in volumetric analysis and master the -3
.various ways of expressing concentrations
Understand the concepts of neutralizations reactions, and be able to calculate the -4
.pH of various systems such strong and weak acids, bases, slats
Understand the importance and applications of buffers, the way they work and -5
.how to calculate the buffer pH
Construct the various types of titration curves, their applications and requirements -6
.Understand the various concepts of Redox reactions and their applications -7

Detailed Course Content:

First week: Introduction, history and types of analytical methods of analysis
Second week: statistical analysis of analytical data
Third week: Volumetric analysis, types of reactions in volumetric analysis, and was of
expressing concentration
Fourth week: Theories of neutralization reactions, and pH calculations
Fifth week: pH indicators and related theories
Sixth week: Med term exam
Seventh week: Buffer systems
Eight week: Titration curves of acids and bases, and salts
Ninth week:. Titration curves of acids and bases, and salts
Tenth week: Titrations curves of polyprotic acids
Eleventh week: Oxidation Reduction reactions
Eleventh week: oxidation reduction reactions
Thirteenth week: Review
Fourteenth week Final exam

Major Teaching methodologies:

Lecturing, cooperative learning, brain storming and discussion, will be the main
teaching methods in this course. Some demonstrations and ICTs will be used when

Course Requirements:
Major part of this course is the application of analytical chemistry to solve real-world
problems. Thus student is expected to be actively engaged in solving assigned
problems. There will be two exams, midterm and final exam. Student is expected to
.keep lab journal for his/her lab work and hand them at the assigned time

Assessment and Grading:

This course will have two exams, midterm and final exam. The grading in this course
:will as follows
Midterm 20 points
Problem sets 10 points
(Final exam 70 points (35 +70
Lab 50 points
.The grade for this course will be determined by your percentage of these 200 points
A 100-90%
B % 89-80
C 79-65%
D 65-50%
bellow F-50
Make up Exams: There will be no make up exams in this course. University
regulations will be followed in the cases where a student misses the final exam. In the
cases where a student did not attend a med-term exam or could not hand-in a problem
set at due date for a valid reason such as documented illness or death in a family,
.these cases will be dealt on individual bases

:Course Calendar
Although student is expected to solve the assigned problems at the end of each week,
.problem sets will be collected at the end of each semester
