CHEM 480 - Advanced Analytical Chemistry

3 Credit(s)

The objective of this course is to introduce the theoretical and experimental bases of new, modern analytical techniques including Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Friction Force Microscopy (FFM), advanced voltammetric techniques, the Electrochemical Quartz Crystal Nanobalance (EQCN), Stripping Voltammetry, Photoelectrochemistry and Spectroelectrochemistry. Practical applications of these techniques will be discussed as they apply to the following topics: measurements of forces between molecules, including antigen/antibody interactions, DNA hybridization, defective gene detection, characterization of new nanostructured materials, solar cells, corrosion studies and detection of heavy metals and pesticides.

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 311 .
