Science Skills Series workshop on GCMS/NMR

Posted on 4/12/2016 9:47:08 AM

This week, IUP students will again have the opportunity to participate in a free science skills workshop. The focus of this week's workshop is the use of the chemical analytical techniques of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GCMS), and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR).

Justin Fair (Chemistry) will lead the workshop, which will first introduce students to the set-up and use of the GCMS and NMR instruments, followed by application of the analytical data generated to the types of problems faced by working chemists.

The GCMS/NMR workshop is scheduled for Room 238 Weyandt, from 1:00–4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 15.

The student prerequisite for this workshop is completion of CHEM 231 (Organic Chemistry I). Space for this workshop is limited, so advance registration for the workshop is required. Interested students should RSVP to Paul Nealen ( if they would like to attend this workshop.

Science Skills Series workshops are free, and open to IUP students of any major.
