Analytical Chemistry

The Department continues a strong tradition in analytical chemistry.

  • analytical atomic spectroscopy

  • marine and environmental analytical chemistry

  • Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometry (initially developed at UBC)

  • new techniques and instrumentation for mass spectrometry with applications to fundamental studies of biomolecules and trace element analysis

  • analytical chemistry as it applies to interfaces and surfaces of materials

  • separation techniques, including electrophoresis and chromatograpy
