Laboratories & Equipment
The Chemistry department occupies the third floor of the Pfeiffer Science building. The department has three fully equipped laboratories, including a general chemistry lab, an analytical lab, and an organic lab. The laboratories house a gas chromatograph and a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer, an infrared spectrometer, a high pressure liquid chromatograph, gel electrophoresis and capillary electrophoresis instruments, a bomb calorimeter, a fluorometer, two ultra-violet/visual scanning spectrometers, an electrochemical detector, two rotary evaporators, an atomic absorbance spectrometer, a defractometer, and a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer. All three laboratories have proper safety equipment.
Also available in the Chemistry department is a computer lounge. Available software allows three dimensional and computational modeling of compounds and the ability to predict experimental results. Data from the lab can be processed and interpreted by the computers.
