Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Researcher Dr. Thomas McCoy at University of Cambridge


"Spectroscopy & Chromatography" course is a comprehensive exploration of analytical techniques that play a pivotal role in various scientific disciplines. Over the course's 27 lectures, students will delve into the fundamental principles and practical applications of both spectroscopy and chromatography, covering topics such as electromagnetic spectrum, types of spectroscopy (UV-Vis, IR, NMR, Mass Spectrometry), various chromatography techniques (HPLC, GC, Ion Chromatography), and their applications in fields ranging from chemistry and materials science to environmental analysis, pharmaceuticals, and more. With an emphasis on real-world applications, troubleshooting, and emerging trends, this course equips learners with a deep understanding of these essential analytical tools.


At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Spectroscopy & Chromatography by Dr. Thomas McCoy at Cambridge

  • Dr. Thomas McCoy is a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. He completed his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees under the supervision of Rico Tabor at Monash University, Australia, looking at the colloidal properties of 2D carbon nanomaterials. Currently, his research focuses on the understanding and optimisation of engine oil formulations and anti-fouling coatings using colloidal building blocks to assist in reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions from transport industries. This work takes place in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at Cambridge, in the lab of Alex Routh. Tom's other research interests includes surfactants and self-assembly and using scattering techniques to elucidate structure-function relationships in colloidal and soft matter systems.
