Thermo IRIS Intrepid II Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer

Trace metals can be detected and identified using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES).  The Trinity Chemistry Department operates an ICP-AES instrument out of Clement 122.  Students learn about this instrument in Instrumental Methods of Chemical Analysis (Chem-312).  Research students working with Professors Henderson and Gourley (Environmental Science) can be found using this instrument.
