Analytical Chemistry

Research Description

Analytical Chemistry at UCI is best described by three overlaping thrust areas that coincide with the varied research interests and expertise of our faculty. These are: Environmental and atmospheric analysis (Blake, Finlayson-Pitts, Hemminger, Nizkorodov), Materials analysis (Hemminger, Penner, Corn, Law, Ardo), and Bioanalysis (Corn, Penner, Weiss, Martin, Ge). Research in analytical chemistry is instrumentation intensive and interdisciplinary, drawing on nonconventional methods including microfabrication, nanoscale electrodeposition, surface enzyme chemistries and the development of single particle/single cell analysis methods.
