Undergraduate chemistry & biochemistry students are the main users of our department’s Scientific Instruments Facilities, which contain over $2 million in state-of-the-art equipment.

Students begin to use scientific instruments in lower division classes, and become highly proficient in upper division labs and research projects, where further training and extensive instrument time is available to each student. The multiplicity and diversity of our scientific instruments ensure that each student gets a real hands-on experience with a variety of analytical techniques.

We regularly upgrade and add new instruments to our holdings, thus opening the compass of analytical techniques available to our students. The department has a full-time Instrument Specialist to respond to the growing needs of our curriculum with respect to scientific instrumentation. Our Scientific Instrument Facilities are well maintained and keep up with the latest development in the field of Scientific Instrumentation, thus preparing our students for their future professional demands.



Current scientific instruments in the department include:

Atomic Absorption Spectrometer
UV-Vis Spectrophotometer
IR Spectrometer
Liquid Chromatography Instrument
Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer
Circular Dichroism Spectrophotometer
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer
