Life is complex, diverse and thoroughly mixed. Our analytical chemists develop ways to identify and quantify specific chemical components within the whole. Through qualitative “What is it?” and quantitative “How much is it?” inquiry, analytical chemists promote understanding of the relationship of specific analyte(s) to the properties of the sample as a whole. They can then gain a deeper understanding of complex phenomena, such as a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis.
Analytical chemistry techniques can be applied to a myriad of fields including environmental chemistry, astrochemistry, pharmaceutical science, forensics, clinical chemistry and biomedical sciences. McMaster’s collaborative approach brings together experts from across disciplines to further knowledge using our state-of-the-art facilities.
