Have you wondered how something like luminescent materials can be used to diagnose diseases through your mobile? How is a discovery like this even possible? Through analytical chemistry- the branch of chemistry that focuses on experimentation! In this episode, ChemTalk hosts Isabella, Riya and Siya meet Dr. Russ Algar and discuss the spectroscopy research that he and his team are conducting at UBC. We discuss how he's able to apply various concepts in chemistry to solve problems one would've never thought could be done with that knowledge- and suggests to our listeners how they can do so themselves! We hope you enjoy! If you would like to know more about Dr. Russ Algar you can check out his research or reach him by email at email@example.com.
