Primer for Liquid Chromatography – Agilent LC Handbook

A primer for liquid chromatography provided by Agilent Technologies. This publication reviews all aspects of fundamental liquid chromatography (LC).  The material covered is similar to might be found in an analytical chemistry textbook.  It is especially well-suited for first time users of liquid chromatography. Reviews of fundamental math, instrument design, and method development are included.  In…

Molecular and Atomic Spectroscopy

Professor Thomas Wenzel wrote these collaborative activities to help students learn about molecular and atomic spectroscopy. Consequently, the student activities cover topics like ultraviolet/visible absorption, molecular fluorescence, infrared, and Raman spectroscopy. Likewise, the activities introduce students to atomic spectroscopy.  In addition, Professor Wenzel provides professor's with a list of learning objectives, an instructor's manual, and advice for generating…

End Creek: Spotted Frogs and Aquatic Snails in Wetlands – A Water Quality Investigation

Introduction This module provides a context for introducing fundamental techniques used in chemical analysis (spectrophotometry, atomic absorbance spectroscopy and ion selective electrodes) along with considerations about sampling and sample preservation. Using an active learning approach, the module explores some fundamental water quality parameters such as the concentration of inorganic cations and anions that may aid…

Introduction to Mass Spectrometry

Introduction This module provides an introduction to the main concepts related to mass spectroscopy. The materials are intended for use in an undergraduate instrumental analysis course and are broken down into categories such as instrument components, hyphenated techniques, and data interpretation.

TOF Tutorial

A basic tutorial on the principles of Time-of-flight mass spectrometer design, presenting the concepts of ionization, acceleration from an ion source, energy dispersion of the ions due to space dispersion in the source, and the use of an ion mirror to focus this dispersion. The two-field source, the ion mirror, and the MCP ion detector is…
