JOHN MACKLIN: ANALYTICAL CHEMISTKyla Raya Period 7
What is Analytical Chemistry? First of all, we should clarify what exactly is analytical chemistry. Analytical Chemistry is the study of matter with the intention of revealing it’s structure, extent, and composition.
John Macklin John Macklin is an analytical chemist. He was born on December 11, 1939 in Fort Worth, Texas.. He is still alive today.
(cont.) John Macklin Macklin has worked with NASA, Stanford University, and Washington State while working and teaching as an analytical chemist.
Who was he as a child? As a child, Macklin was always curious about everything and wanted to know how things work and what they are made of.
(cont.) As A Child At Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon, he first chose a major in chemical engineering but found that theoretical research suited him better.
(Cont.) As A Child While at college, he had a minor in music so he sang in the choir, and played on the varsity football team. In 1962, Macklin received his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Linfield. Macklin continued his studies in analytical chemistry at Cornell University in New York, where he has a six-year research assistantship.
His Contributions Raman Spectrometry- Macklin changed the technique of Raman spectrometry, the way of finding out what creates an atom in a material and how they are combined in a molecular structure, into a more advanced form to test very small samples. He also extended the use of the Raman spectrometry to the study of environmental pollution.
Raman Spectrometry …NOW!!!!!! See the detail!!!
NASA and STANFORD Macklin also worked with scientists from NASA and Stanford University in the analyization of meteorites and cosmic dust particles, searching for carbon-based molecules to explain the reason why Earth has a carbon-based life.
