Teaching spectroscopy in the high school chemistry classroom

Our special guest presenter, Sally Mitchell, is a Chemistry teacher and the 2009 Conant Award winner for High School Chemistry Teacher of the Year.
This webinar will demonstrate how to incorporate UV-Visible and Infrared spectroscopy into the high school chemistry curriculum. The use of a UV-Visible spectrophotometer will be discussed for kinetics and equilibrium experiments along with an infrared spectrometer for the identification of polymers and other compounds. Specific experiments will be presented including an Aspirin lab for the Visible instrumentation and a Polymer lab for infrared.

On-demand webinar: mRNA vaccine development and manufacturing workflows enabled by UV-Vis spectroscopy

mRNA vaccine methodologies have many advantages over traditional vaccine workflows. Primarily, they elicit a potent immune response, have a much shorter development cycle, and cost less to manufacture. Development of mRNA vaccines requires highly purified nucleic acid components to ensure efficient production.

In this webinar, the speaker will look at the steps involved in the mRNA vaccine development and production process and highlight how UV-Vis spectroscopy is an important QA/QC tool in these workflows.
