Analytical chemistry is the science of obtaining, processing, and communicating information about the composition and structure of matter. In other words, it is the art and science of determining what matter is and how much of it exists.
Analytical chemists perform qualitative and quantitative analysis; use the science of sampling, defining, isolating, concentrating, and preserving samples; set error limits; validate and verify results through calibration and standardization; perform separations based on differential chemical properties; create new ways to make measurements; interpret data in proper context; and communicate results.
They use their knowledge of chemistry, instrumentation, computers, and statistics to solve problems in almost all areas of chemistry. M.Sc Analytical chemistry is available in following colleges in Tamil Nadu.
