Course objectives :

The analytical chemistry I course aims to provide the student with the basic principles of volumetric and gravimetric analysis, to introduce the fundamentals underpinning pharmaceutical analysis, analytical quality control and instrumental analysis and also to enhance scientific thinking and logical approach to problem solving.

Course description :

The Analytical Chemistry I is concerned with the following topics: -The fundamentals of quantitative chemical analysis, pH calculations, volumetric methods of analysis, ionic equilibrium, volumetric calculations, strengths of acids and bases, indicators, buffer solutions , hydrolysis of salts and primary standard materials. -Derivation of titration curves of strong acids, strong bases, weak acids and weak bases. -Applications of neutralization titrations to elemental analysis by Kjeldahl method. -Determination of strong acids and bases ,weak acids and bases, ammonium salts, carbonates, hydrogen carbonates, phosphoric acid, nitrates, nitrites, amino acids and organic functional groups. -Precipitation titrations, complex-formation titration(EDTA) and gravimetry. -Nonaqueous titrations, reasons for its application, classification of solvents, autoprotolysis, titrants, primary standards, indicators and applications to the determination of organic bases, sulphonamides, barbiturates and alkaloidal salts.
