Analysis of Uric Acid Metabolites in Urine (or in synthetic urine) by HPLC-MS

  Introduction: This laboratory experiment makes use of HPLC-MS to identify and quantify uric acid, 6-aminouracil (6-AU), and allantoin in synthetic urine, with tyrosine as an internal standard. It is designed for use in Quantitative Analysis laboratory, but may find applications in forensic and biochemistry laboratories as well. An Excel file is provided that serves as…

Separation Science

Designed as a faculty resource on separation science, with a particular emphasis on chromatographic separations.  The published materials focus on active learning but may be modified to fit any curricular pedagogy. Materials include a text, sample problems, and an instructor's manual. The website is available here .

Experiments in Electroanalytical Chemistry

This website offers educators a set of eight classical electroanalytical experiments suitable for use in a quantitative analysis, instrumental analysis, or electrochemistry course. The materials should be useful for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Experiments include coulometric, conductometric, and potentiometric titrations, stripping analysis, flow injection analysis, and polarography. The experiments are designed around a common…

Electrochemical Detection of Phenol Utilizing a Synthesized Sonogel-carbon Zirconium Oxide

This experiment is designed for senior undergraduate students in an inorganic chemistry course. Students are asked to synthesize a sonogel-carbon electrode that is modified with a ZrO2 sol-gel and to compare the results to those of an unmodified electrode for the detection of phenol. The website is available here .

Analytical Electrochemistry: A Laboratory Manual

This labware module contains directions for seven experiments in analytical electrochemistry. The experiments are designed to illustrate fundamentals of electrode reactions as applied to readily accessible redox reactants. They provide insight to dynamic electrochemistry for scientists at all levels of training. Activation procedures to prepare glassy carbon electrodes are provided in a TechNote. The website is available…

A Biosensor for Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes

This site contains an article that describes the use of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) spectroscopy to monitor real-time protein binding with fullerenes and carbon nanotubes. The introductory section provides a brief description of SPR and how it works. It next talks about the features of the Texas Instrument's SPR, known as Speetra, which is…
