Our Department is proud of its equipment and instrument holdings. The variety of modern equipment allows the many students who participate in research at the undergraduate and graduate levels to become familiar with modern instrumentation and experimental design. As a result, our graduates fare well in the next stages of their careers, be it employment in industry or pursing higher degrees at graduate or professional schools.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is housed in the Biological Sciences building along with the departments of Physics and Astronomy, and Biological Sciences, and is adjacent to the Health Center Building. The proximity of these facilities gives students a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary research and fosters creative exchange among the sciences. Graduate students have access to network computer facilities in individual labs and in a departmental computer room. The department is well-equipped for modern research. Major equipment includes FTIRs, Silicon Graphics workstations with molecular modeling software, two atomic absorption spectrophotometers with graphite furnaces, two capillary electrophoresis instruments, numerous HPLCs and GCs, a 400 MHz, 300 and 200 MHz NMR, scintillation counters, cold rooms, plant growth room, UV-Vis spectrophotometers, glove boxes, superspeed ultracentrifuges, phosphorimager, densitometer, fluorescence microscope, DNA and protein electrophoresis apparatus, and thermocyclers. These instruments are available for student and faculty use and are operated by research specialists who are available to provide user training and to assist in experimental design and interpretation of results. A glass shop with a full-time glassblower is housed in the department. A machine and electronics shop is housed in the Physical Sciences Building and Staffed by expert instrument makers.
