Analytical Chemistry Research

Analytic InstrumentAnalytical chemistry is the science of determining the chemical identity and amount of matter. It requires separation of complex mixtures based on chemical properties, identification using qualitative methods and with spectroscopic techniques, and quantitative analysis utilizing standards to set limits of detection and uncertainties. Analytical chemistry is used in most areas of chemistry, and finds commercial applications, such as determining compliance with environmental regulations, monitoring food safety, assisting the legal profession through forensic analysis, and the health care industry through disease diagnosis.

Solouki-Mass-SpecUMaine chemists utilize high resolution Fourier transform instruments, for mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared and Raman spectroscopy, to analyze complex samples in research projects involving biological, environmental, alternative energy, and wood chemistry. They also develop new instrumentation and methods, ranging from traditional laboratory instruments to miniaturized sensor systems for portable field applications and even smaller devices created through clean room lithographic processing that can interrogate biological systems on cellular length scales. We invite you to learn more about these projects from the faculty pages below.
