**Specifically one needs
to review: Chapters 13, 14, 15,16, 17, 22, 24, 26, 31, 32, 33, 34, A-1.**

**Literature: The Types
of literature in analytical chemistry and specific examples. The total
process needed in doing a literature search.**

**Real World Analysis: Specific
Problems and Factors to consider.**

**Oxidation Reduction: Definitions,
Nernst equation, concentration factors, half cells, chemical equations,
applications.**

**Spectrophotometry: Beers
Law, Quantitation, Limitations, Applications, Titrations**

**Separations: Types, Equations,
Goals and limitations, Tips.**

**A suggestive but not necessarily
an inclusive list of thought questions:**

**1. The problems and joys
of samples from everyday life.**

**2. Requirements for redox,
precipitation, complexometric, and spectral titrations.**

**3. How does one choose
an indicator for a redox, precipitation or a complexometric titration.**

**4. Discuss the role of
indicators in redox, precipitation and complexometric titrations.**

**5. Discuss the role of
pH in titrations: redox, spectral, precipitation and complexometric**

**(Is there a universal
pH?)**

**6. Discuss the role of
oxidation state in Redox, Spectral and Spectral Determinations.**

**7. Discuss the role of
matrix in redox, spectral, precipitation and complexometric determinations.**

**8. Be able to work with
mixtures in redox, precipitation and complexometric determinations.**

**9. Be able to use Beer's
Law**

**10. Be able to use Excel
regressions with Beer's Law.**

**11. Know the difference
between a Walden (Ag) and Jones (Zn) reductor.**

**12. Apply the Nernst Equation.**

**13. Balance Redox Equations.**

**14. Calculate Spontaneous
Reactions, Keq, and E at equivalence point.**

**15. Discuss Interferences.**

**16. Discuss Deviations
form Beer's Law.**

**17. Discuss the factors
needed for liquid/liquid separations.**

**18. Discuss the role of
separations and alternatives.**

**19. Compare and Contrast
the various types of Chemical Literature.**

**The test will probably
be 30-40% discussion or verbal and 60 to 70% numerical problems.**

**Do you want a Help Session
on either Tuesday between 3:30 and 5:30 PM time frame or Monday before
Chemistry Seminar?**
