Analytical Chemistry

Analytical Chemistry teaches successful identification and meaningful quantification of chemicals in both natural and man-made materials.  An analytical chemist adopts proven methodologies in reliable chemical measurements and develops procedures for particular samples.  Research in analytical chemistry seeks to improve existing methods and techniques, and to develop analytical tools for serving the needs of frontier of science.
