Undergraduate courses

CHMB16H3 Techniques in Analytical Chemistry

An introduction to the principles and methods of classical analysis and the provision of practical experience in analytical laboratory techniques will be introduced. The course deals primarily with quantitative chemical analysis. Classical methods of volumetric analysis, sampling techniques, statistical handling of data are studied, as well as a brief introduction to optical and electrochemical analysis.
This course includes a four-hour laboratory every week.

More information about the course can be found in Calendar.

The lecture notes are on Intranet and Blackboard portals.

Exclusion: CHM217H
Prerequisite: CHMA10H & CHMA11H
Recommended: CHMB31H


CHMD71H3 Pharmaceutical Chemistry

This course emphasizes the fundamentals of pharmacology and chemical reactions vital to drug action and design. Clinically important drugs will be used as examples. The course is aimed at undergraduates, who have a basic ground in organic chemistry and are interested in learning about drug design and the molecular mechanisms by which drugs act in the body. Consequently, the course is of particular interest to students who might be considering a future career in the pharmaceutical industry and medicine.


Graduate courses

CHM1150H Advances in Electroanalytical Chemistry and Electrochemical Sensors

This course will provide the fundamentals of electrochemistry as applied to solve problems of analysis. The course will focus on electrode types and materials, surface derivatization methods for preparation of chemically-modified electrodes, pulse forms and sequences for voltammetry, electron transfer and relay systems for 'molecular wiring', and examples of biosensor technology. Electrochemical sensors such as those for glucose and DNA analysis will serve as a platform for consideration of device engineering, and to examine requirements for commercialization of device technologies.
