Welcome to the Anderson Research Group!

Research within the Anderson Group focuses on all areas of separation science and sample preparation. We are specifically interested in employing and understanding the role that ionic liquids (ILs), polymeric ionic liquids (PILs), and magnetic ionic liquids (MILs) play in chromatographic separations and sample preparation, particularly microextraction-based techniques. In addition, we develop new synthetic approaches of these compounds for targeted applications within the fields of analytical and bioanalytical chemistry. The Anderson Group collaborates with a number of academic research groups in Europe, South America, North America, and Asia. We also work closely with numerous industrial collaborators as we develop separation/sample preparation methodologies that solve challenging industrial problems.

Professor Jared L. Anderson
Professor Anderson joined the chemistry faculty in August 2015. Prior to joining ISU, he was a faculty member at The University of Toledo from 2005 through 2015 where he held the ranks of assistant, associate, and full professor of chemistry. He earned his B.S. in 2000 from South Dakota State University and his Ph.D. from… see more
