Welcome to the Analytical Chemistry Program
The graduate major in Analytical Chemistry prepares students for employment as analytical chemists in public and private laboratories that specialize in the application of wet chemical and instrumental procedures to problem solving. This graduate major is designed to build upon an undergraduate background in chemistry or a related field, providing a theoretical base in analytical chemistry while emphasizing practical experience with analytical instrumentation. Hands-on experience with instrumentation is the focus of the curriculum and is its most important asset. Recognizing the importance of future genetic engineering technology and the analytical techniques that will need to be developed to support it, the curriculum also has a biochemistry component.
Faculty research interests range widely and include topics such as spectrochemistry, ion chromatography and liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry, electrochemistry, analysis of metals in the environment, water analysis, biochemistry, molecular modeling, science edu¬cation, photooxygenation chemistry, fullerene chemistry, photochemistry, bio-inorganic chemistry, trace analysis of organic pesticides, and proteomics/genomics.
