CHEM 597  Special Topics: Mass Spectrometry

Instructor: Mike Callahan, michaelcallahan914@boisestate.edu 

Pre-requisites: CHEM 411/511 or concurrent enrollment.  Or by permission of instructor.

Did you know that there is a mass spectrometer operating on the Curiosity Rover on Mars right now?  Or that drug testing in sports is accomplished using a mass spectrometer.  And maybe that Tricorder in Star Trek will someday become a reality because of mass spectrometry.

Mass spectrometers are one of the most useful instruments in chemistry.  And the field of mass spectrometry is gigantic.  This class will be geared towards building a strong understanding of mass spectrometry concepts, components, and numerous applications of mass spectrometry and will include student participation and (hopefully) hands-on experiences.
