The Chemical Advanced Resolution Methods (ChARM) Laboratory is part of the Microanalytical Facility overseen by the Vice President for Research Office in the Great Lakes Research Center. We aim to develop novel instrumental capabilities for environmental and biological complex mixtures to enable advances in research and development. Our overall mission is to serve as an enabling resource for academic research involving students and faculty.
"Charm (noun) is the power or quality of giving delight or arousing admiration; to be fascinating or pleasing."
Tomorrow Needs Chemists
Air is Not Just Air.
Air is a just a sterile, preset mix of oxygen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and other molecules, it is dynamic and full of soot, sulfates, dust and other particles. At ChARM, we analyze complex samples and how their chemistry and history affects built and natural environments, climate change, and human health.
