Course is designed to acquaint students with various methods of instrumental analysis, and their limitations. Laboratory exercises require students to actually make use of a variety of instruments, or to carry out different types of analyses. Case histories are presented for which students must write brief reports commenting on whether "first choice" instruments were used to analyze samples and whether conclusions were justified based on the instrumental, or analytical, technique used.
