Research Description:

Professor Brandt was an Associate Professor at UWM from 1965 to 1985, Department Chair from 1976-1978, Professor from 1985 to 1992 and Professor Emeritus from 1992 until present. Research areas included: basic studies in plasma chemistry and solid state reactions; diffusion measurements on high polymers, zeolites, etc., and computer simulations related thereto. Recent interests include: searching the chemical literature via computer, and relating chemistry to liberal arts..

From September 1992 to August 1994, Professor Brandt was a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the University of Niarobi, Kenya, Africa, lecturing and collaborating on current research.

Teaching activities over the years:

Professor Brandt taught undergraduate courses in physical chemistry, quantitative analysis, and general chemistry (lectures and laboratories in all three courses), senior seminar, chemical literature, and a novel course "Chemistry and the Liberal Arts".

Graduate courses taught included: thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, quantum chemistry, chemical kinetics, solid state chemistry, computational methods in physical chemistry, physical chemistry of high polymers, graduate seminars and colloquia.

Professor Brandt obtained a number of grants for teaching equipment, such as laser instrumentation, in addition to his sizable research grants.
