Research Facilities - Chemistry and Biochemistry
The faculty of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry work alongside other natural science colleagues in the departments of biology, health science, environmental science and studies, and physics, sharing a 22,000 square-foot Sage Science Facility and the newly-constructed 44,000 square-foot Brown Hall Center for Health and Innovation set to open in November 2023.
The deparment is well-equipped to perform both synthetic (experimental) and computational research with undergraduate students. Some of our facilities and research instrumentation are shown below:
JEOL 400 MHz NMR spectrometer w/autosampler, auto-tunable probe, and variable temperature capabilities.
Perkin-Elmer FT-IR spectrometer w/ATR attachment and Lamda 365 UV-vis spectrometer.
Agilent Technologies HPLC with dual wavelength detector and Waters HPLC
He-Ar Laser and spectrofluorometer
Shimadzu GC-2014 gas chromatograph and Hewlett Packard GC/MS
Perkin-Elmer atomic absorption spectrometer and differential scanning calorimeter
Labconco glove box and Pine electrochemistry potentiostat
