Iontophoresis and Flame Photometry: A Hybrid Interdisciplinary Experiment
Sharp, Duncan; Cottam, Linzi; Bradley, Sarah; Brannigan, Jeanie; Davis, James
Journal of Chemical Education, v87 n7 p730-731 Jul 2010
The combination of reverse iontophoresis and flame photometry provides an engaging analytical experiment that gives first-year undergraduate students a flavor of modern drug delivery and analyte extraction techniques while reinforcing core analytical concepts. The experiment provides a highly visual demonstration of the iontophoresis technique and engenders a more active participation in the analytical process. The construction of a safe and cost-effective iontophoresis system is described that has proven to be sufficiently robust for use within the undergraduate laboratory. (Contains 3 figures.)
