Looking for some exercises that can put a jolt into your undergraduate electrochemistry lab? Want to bone up on methods for measuring electrochemical impedance or other techniques? Check out this electrochemistry portal from chemist Marty St. Clair of Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Experiments section provides references for more than 80 published labs from sources such as the Journal of Chemical Education, and many of the protocols are available online. One lab requires students to use cyclic voltammetry to determine the concentration of ingredients in over-the-counter painkillers; another challenges them to devise a procedure for detecting DNA bases in a sample. The Background section rounds up tutorials from journals, universities, and companies.
