CHEM 720/7200-01 - Introduction to Experimental Design and Chemometrics

Semester: Winter 2022 Professor: T. Gorecki | Discipline: Analytical | Campus: Waterloo
Experimentation is one of the foundational pillars of science. Any theoretical hypothesis that is formulated must ultimately be proved or disproved by experiments. While the scientific method is generally intuitively understood by researchers, not all of them fully realize how various controllable and uncontrollable factors might affect their results. Also, the approach to experimentation is often far from optimal. The course will try to fill these voids by exploring the areas mentioned ...

CHEM 720/7200-02 - Electroanalysis at the Nanoscale

Semester: Winter 2022 Professor: A. Chen | Discipline: Analytical | Campus: Guelph
This course will introduce fundamentals of electrode kinetics, reaction mechanisms and electrochemical methods. Electroanalytical techniques and their roles in modern analytical chemistry will be surveyed. The development of nanomaterial-based electrochemical sensor and biosensor in medical, pharmaceutical, environmental and food safety applications will be explored.      ...
