100703083028     Instrumental Analysis     (3 cr.)

Prerequisites:   None

Instrumental analysis has been the standard for courses that deals with the principles and applications of modern analytical instruments. It places an emphasis on the theoretical basis of each type of instrument, its optimal area of application, its sensitivity, its precision, and its limitations. The course also introduces students to elementary analog and digital electronics, computers, and treatment of analytical data.

Instrumental Analysis is an analytic method based on physical and physical chemical properties of materials. As an experimental technology course, Instrumental Analysis is of great benefit to improve students’ practical ability and the ability to use modern scientific instruments.

100703083030     Organic Chemistry (I)     (4 cr.)

Prerequisites:   None

Organic chemistry is a fundamental basic chemistry theory course. Through the study of this course, it will make students systematically master the basic theory of organic chemistry, basic knowledge and basic skills.
