Project Report 40% (Paper and Presentation)
MIDTERMS 40% (Feb 22 and March 29)
During the course students will be asked to complete a literature project regarding the method of analysis of a chosen group of environmentally or biologically important substances which utilize analytical separations. There are two parts of the project – 10-page (single spaced) description (plus figures) and the 30 minutes presentation (April 5, 2021).
