Senior Lab Instructor: Nichole Taylor
The set up for Chem 461 is as a 'mini-project'. The student can therefore focus on more in-depth methods of analysis. For example, a typical project might include extracting an analyte from a matrix, as well as quantifying the analyte and validating the method of analysis chosen. This expands on topics learned in Chem 361, as the methods encountered there are now used as part of the project.
The idea is that each student will pursue his or her own project, chosen independently, and approved by the course coordinator. Over the semester, the project is developed and guided by the student, with frequent consultation with the coordinator. The course is a more in depth analytical laboratory experience, as well as an introduction to analytical chemistry research.
