CHEM 431

CHEM 431 is a team-taught course offered each spring semester.  The course focuses on topics that are at the forefront of chemical analysis.  Our main resource for the course is the primary literature.  Students in the course use readings from the primary literature to explore current developments and to apply knowledge gained from previous courses to develop strategies and solutions to “real world” problems. 

Recent topics covered in CHEM 431 include:

  • Quality assurance in chemical measurements

  • Miniaturization of chemical instrumentation

  • Analytical applications of plasma sources

  • Analytical solutions to environmental problems

  • Multi-dimensional gas chromatography

  • Biochemical mass spectrometry

  • And several others!

Class-specific information is distributed via Truman’s Blackboard site.
