Chemistry Students Showcase their Instrumentation Skills at the 5th Annual Analytical Research Conference

Chem 3203 is an Advanced Analytical Laboratory course taught by Drs. Roderick Chisholm and Alan Doucette. This lab-based course introduces students to various analytical techniques and data processing skills that can be applied to basic research, process and product development, instrument design, and quality assurance. As part of this course, students also carry out three-week, self-designed projects, which this year ranged from analyzing the yellow dye in Kraft dinner to the aging of wines. Sixteen projects were presented at the 5th Annual Analytical Research Conference held on April 5, 2017. This year’s winners include:

Public Choice Award: Philip Jakubec, “Building an Atomic Force Microscope.”

Instructors Choice Award: Mikaela and Emma Power, “When Life Gives You Lemons, Use Household Cleaners.

Congratulations to all the students for another great year!
