Chromatography Certificate


The Chromatography Certificate program provides the fundamentals of separation science theory and concepts of separation science and their applications in solving analytical problems. Students also receive an introduction to the operating principles and applications of state-of-the-art LC/GC instrumentation and analysis. Covered topics include chromatographic fractionation extraction, emerging methods for the separation and analysis of complex mixtures, gas and liquid chromatography, optimization of LC and GC separations, and the diverse range of analytical applications amenable to GC/LC analysis.
