Among the lab facilities and equipment available to our students are:
- Computer data systems, electronic analytical balances, Vernier handheld computers (LabQuest2) with sensors, spectrophotometers and pH meters in introductory labs.
- Microscale and macroscale glassware, GC, FT-IR, GC-MS, and FT-NMR in organic chemistry labs.
- Instrumentation labs with research grade capillary gas chromatographs, high pressure liquid chromatograph (HPLC), voltammetric analyzers, controlled growth mercury electrode (CGME), atomic absorption/emission spectrometers, ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis), and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometers.
- Physical chemistry research lab with ultra-high vacuum systems, quadrupole spectrometers, 2-D UV/Vis absorption apparatus, and Diffuse Reflectance Infrared Fourier Transform Spectroscopy (DRIFTS) apparatus for heterogeneous uptake studies.
- 300 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) with broadband and variable temperature capabilities.
- Gas chromatogram-mass spectrometer (GC-MS) with auto sampler.
- NSF funded (1999-2002) Molecular Modeling/Computational Chemistry lab and student access workstations.
- Total organic carbon analyzer and graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrophotometer (GFAAS), among other instrumentation, are housed in the CNRS Core Laboratory Facility.
All of the instruments are intended for use in the classroom or for independent study by our students.
