Analytical Chemistry

Analytical chemistry is an investigative science that obtains information about matter by analyzing its chemical components. The purpose of our research is to study both the qualitative and quantitative identities of matter by determining both the chemical composition and the amount of component(s) in any given sample.

Our scientists use their knowledge of chemistry, computers, and instruments as a part of their many experimental techniques, and their research is supported by a variety of state-of-the-art facilities, including: high-resolution mass spectrometry, high-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopies, cryoprobes, HPLC, FPLC, centrifugal partition chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and GC/mass spectrometry. Faculty research interests focus on: analytical chemistry applications with special emphasis on bioanalytical analyses using fluorescence spectroscopy and capillary electrophoresis (CE); and single bioactivity sensing by functional nanopore platforms.
