Recent Findings from United States Department of Energy Has Provided New Information about Chemical Education (Dark Field Microscopy for Analytical Laboratory Courses)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Education Letter -- Data detailed on Chemical Education have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Ames, Iowa, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "An innovative and inexpensive optical microscopy experiment for a quantitative analysis or an instrumental analysis chemistry course is described."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the United States Department of Energy, "The students have hands-on experience with a dark field microscope and investigate the wavelength dependence of localized surface plasmon resonance in gold and silver nanoparticles. Students also observe and measure individual crystal growth during a replacement reaction between copper and silver nitrate."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The experiment allows for quantitative, qualitative, and image data analyses for undergraduate students."
