Analytical & Bioanalytical

Analytical & Bioanalytical Chemistry

We trace our ancestral roots back to one of the founding fathers of modern analytical chemistry, Izaak Maurits "Piet" Kolthoff, whose outstanding contributions to the discipline laid the groundwork for a truly scientific approach to chemical analysis. Faculty direct interdisciplinary research projects that overlap with other chemical foci in the Chemistry Department, interconnect with other departments and institutes on campus, and collaborate with local and national industrial partners. Researchers have access to state-of-the-art characterization equipment within their research groups and at a number of user facilities on campus. As a result, our graduates are well prepared for careers that expect both an expertise in analytical and bioanalytical chemistry and a fundamental, well-rounded knowledge of related disciplines.

Some of our research topics include:

  • heterogeneous catalysis,
  • surface science, with an emphasis on catalytic and electrocatalytic phenomena,
  • theory and development of modern separation techniques,
  • polymer dynamics and characterization, and
  • design, synthesis, and crystal growth of molecular and supramolecular solids.
