Unit Code: FIS415 / FIS603

Unit Title: Introduction to Analytical Chemistry

The Analytical Chemistry Unit is structured to help students understand the principles and application of chemistry in aquaculture and fish nutrition. Common analytical methods using the knowledge of chemistry are explored. The Unit has two parts; Part 1: analytical chemistry and Part 2 laboratory practices. In part 1, topics covered include; analytical chemistry classic methods, concentrations, stoichiometry, experimental errors, instrumental methods, nutrition, biochemical methods for fish feeds and statistical analysis. Part II comprises of laboratory practices and focuses on analysis practices in the laboratory, including guidelines, safety, maintenance and supervisions.
