One of my favorite things about research is getting to use instruments that I wouldn’t have gotten to use otherwise. Last week, I learned how to use the Dynamic Light Scattering instrument (pictured here). DLS utilizes the scattering of light by a particle in solution to calculate the radius of the particles. It will be useful to us as it can measure the...Read More

Instrumental Analysis Students Help with poly-Aspartic Acid experiments!
Thanks for all chemistry majors in CHEM 3108 – Instrumental Methods of Analysis for completing a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) lab to look at the interactions between hydroxyapatite and poly-aspartic acid. The entire class joined the research group and we collected a lot of data quickly! ~Dr. GerdonRead More
