Simplifying Organic Chemistry

For Nico Terreros, a scientific breakthrough began with a conversation. Working together with organic chemistry professor Andrew Roberts, Terreros created an instrument that is based on a common practice in organic chemistry known as thin layer chromatography. Thin layer chromatography is used to separate various components of compounds of a chemical mixture. This provides qualitative […]
