Chemistry Department Facilities

The Department of Chemistry is located in Berliner Hall.  Our modern building is well-equipped and houses classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices, and a teaching computer laboratory. Small laboratory class sizes promote close student-faculty interaction and hands-on use of our sophisticated equipment.  Some of the instrumentation located in the Chemistry Department’s laboratories includes:

  • JEOL ECS 400 MHz FT-NMR spectrometer
  • Agilent 1100 LC-MSD
  • Agilent and Waters HPLCs
  • Bruker Scion 436 GC-MS/MS
  • Hewlett-Packard GC-MS
  • Agilent 7820 GC-FID/ECD
