Analytical chemistry is a cornerstone of modern chemistry and many of the traditional techniques remain in use, albeit now mostly in automated form. The cognitive and practical skills developed in analytical work has ensured its inclusion in all chemistry programs worldwide. While laboratory work by its nature incorporates the cognitive and psychomotor learning domains, it does not always fully include the affective domain. This can be often attributed to repetition of laboratory activities -- 'we've done this before' -- and so it is useful to have access to a range of more diverse activities to engage and challenge students.This book is a laboratory manual which focuses on chemical analysis, providing teachers with a rich source of novel experiments. It features approximately 60 practical activities which have been extensively beta-tested, and do not require access to specialist equipment. There are worked examples for students and well-developed appendices for instructors and technicians. While not aligned with any specific curriculum, the activities are drawn from content across the nations including AP Chemistry, A-level Chemistry, BTEC National Diploma, Irish Leaving Certificate, Scottish Advanced Higher, International Baccalaureate, Abitur, and Matura. It is suitable for high school, community college, and early undergraduate students, and will be especially useful for those preparing for competitions such as the International Chemistry Olympiad and World Skills as it contains more unusual applications of well-known techniques.
