Bruker DPX-300 Raman

       Bruker DPX-300 NMR Spectrometer
       A broadband probe is used to obtain Nuclear Magnetic
       Resonance spectra of protons, carbon-13 and other nuclei
       in liquid samples. Solids are studied with a cross-
       polarization/magic-angle-spinning (CP/MAS) probe.

       A GBC 908 Atomic Absorption Spectrometer is a key
       instrument in the Analytical Lab. Low concentrations of metals
       are detected with this instrument.

Oxford Pulsar Infrared Spectrometer

       Oxford Pulsar
       Benchtop NMR Spectrometer
       60 MHz Protons

       The Department has two Fourier-Transform Infrared
       Spectrometers. The Thermo Nicolet IR-300 gets heavy
       use in the Organic Chemistry Labs for the identification of
       organic coumpounds. An ATR attachment makes
       it easy to take IR spectra of solids.

       Benchtop Time Domain NMR Spectrometer
       20 MHz Protons

       Mattson Research Series
       Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrometer with an MCT


Atago Polarimeter

       Shimadzu GCMS-QP2010S
       Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer 

       Atago AP-100 Automatic Polarimeter

MALDI Computer Lab

       Bruker Microflex MALDI-TOF MS
       Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization
       Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

       The Chemistry Department has it's own computer lab in Room
       121 Heckert-Wells. The computer lab is adjacent to the
       main chemistry lab for General Chemistry and Organic
       Chemistry. When a chemistry lab calls for computer
       analysis of data, the computer lab is reserved for use by that lab
