The Analytical Chemistry Division consists of a dynamic group of faculty, research associates, and visiting scientists whose research spans the classical topics of analytical chemistry. This comprehensive program covers the areas of mass spectrometry, separations, electrochemistry, and spectroscopy with applications in the following fields: biomedical/pharmaceutical, environmental, forensic/toxicology, nanotechnology, sensors, defense/homeland security, and structural biology/biochemistry. Students work with and develop state-of-the-art equipment (e.g. photoacoustic sensors, pulsed and continuous wave lasers, ion cyclotron MS, impedance spectroscopy, and 3-D amperometry) in top-notch facilities to solve problems of critical significance.
