Wicked Problems in Enviro Chem
Advanced topics in analytical chemistry related to instructor's areas of interest and expertise.
In this course (Spring 2022), we will explore Wicked Questions in Environmental Chemistry with a focus on the Analytical Techniques that are developed and employed to study them. Upon completion of this course, students will have demonstrated competence in: (a) identifying the complexity of wicked questions in environmental chemistry, (b) understanding the operating principles of a variety of cutting edge analytical techniques including long range spectroscopic methods, electrochemical sensors, nanomaterial and surface methods, chromatography and mass spectrometry, (c) finding, reading, discussing and presenting primary literature for cutting edge analytical techniques, and (d) communicating science to a variety of audiences in both written and oral form.
Satisfies a major requirement in Chemistry.
