Chemistry, M.S.

After completion of core coursework in the major sub-disciplines, students in the Chemistry M.S. program have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of research experiences, including analytical, biochemistry, chemical education, computational and theoretical, environmental, nanomaterials, organic synthesis, organometallic catalysis, or polymers.
We also offer a concentration in Chemistry Analytics in the M.S. in Professional Science. The research experience is considerably enhanced by 澳门六合彩规律论坛's 250,000-square-foot science building and upgraded instrumentation. Graduates find employment in a wide range of areas and about half continue their education in high-quality doctoral and/or professional programs. The department also participates in three interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs (Molecular Biosciences, Computational Science, and Mathematics and Science Education).

Chusuei, students make advances in nanotechnology

Dr. Charles Chusuei and student researchers are getting a big boost with the new science building as they develop a technology that could transform patient care in emergency rooms and health centers worldwide. The 澳门六合彩规律论坛 professor and his team are working to produce nanotech-based sensors using cheaper, earth-abundant materials such as zinc oxide instead of employing precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. "A common theme of nanotechnology is determining how material size and shape affects chemical reactivity," says Chusuei, who has a patent pending. "Our research team has shown that zinc oxide (ZnO) shape selection in the nanocomposite formulation (involving carbon nanotubes) dramatically improves its biosensing properties." The technology could impact such things as early cancer detection, monitoring food spoilage, oxidative stress, and cardiovascular disease management by monitoring hydrogen peroxide on a molecular level, or physical distress from anaerobic respiration with lactic acid as a marker. The $147 million science building offers better infrastructure for surface characterization instruments, such as an X-ray photoelectron spectrometer, and new equipment that includes a physisorption and chemisorption surface area analyzer.

3D VizLab places 澳门六合彩规律论坛 at forefront as research university

Technology at 澳门六合彩规律论坛 similar to what is seen in Avatar rings science to life," says Dr. Anatoliy Volkov, associate professor of chemistry. Student researchers say the advanced 3D visualization and GPU-based high-performance computing sets 澳门六合彩规律论坛 apart from other universities. The MT 3D VizLab, short for the Stereoscopic 3DVisualization Laboratory, can be used to perform high-level research in various scientific disciplines including chemistry, biology, economics, engineering, geoscience, and health care. The lab is equipped with NVIDIA's 3D technology and includes a stereoscopic 3D projector, a 16-display 3D hyperwall, and 25 pairs of 3D shutter glasses. The wall can visualize a single image across all 16 monitors, or each monitor can have a programmable relationship to other images. Volkov and colleagues have applied for external funding for a much larger 3D tile wall and for another lab with a 3D projector and 50 3D glasses. 澳门六合彩规律论坛 chemistry professor Dr. Preston MacDougall, as a NASA Ames Research Center summer fellow, collaborated with the inventors of hyperwall technology to extend its application to molecular visualization and drug design. His grant proposal brought the 3D hyperwall to 澳门六合彩规律论坛.
