In 2001, the Department of Chemistry moved into new and renovated spaces on the 4th floor of Johnstone Science Center and Miller Hall. We share the floor with the Department of Nursing and the Biotechnology Center. Click on the pictures below to see larger images of our instruments, research labs, and classrooms.
In addition to standard laboratory equipment such as pH meters, top-loading and analytical balances, Vernier computer interface units, and chemistry-specific software, the chemistry department maintains sophisticated instruments that are available for student use in their courses and on research projects.
Classrooms and Research Labs
The center of the chemistry department is the research and instrument suite. Four individual research labs provide space for students to work one-on-one with chemistry faculty, and additional research space exits for our students in the Environmental and Biotechnology Centers in the Johnstone Science Center. Instruments are housed in one of two instrument suites that are easily accessed from the surrounding classrooms. The biochemistry classroom/lab is located in the Biotechnology Center.
