FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT

Completely renovated and expanded, Albright’s Science Center reopened in 2011 and offers more than 78,000 square feet of state-of-the-art laboratory and classroom space. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is housed entirely within the facility.

Instrumentation

The department has a wealth of modern instrumentation. Available for teaching and research are:

  • FT-IR spectrometers
  • CD spectrometer
  • Ultraviolet-visible and atomic absorption spectrophotometers
  • Rapid-scan UV-vis spectrophotometer
  • Spectrofluorometers
  • 300 MHz FT-NMR spectrometer
  • 400 MHz FT-NMR spectrometer
  • EC potentiostat/galvanostat
  • HPLCs
  • Variety of gas chromatographs including an autosampling model and a GC-mass spectrometer
  • Refrigerated superspeed and ultraspeed centrifuges

The department also has glove-box and solvent purification systems. A 24-processor computer cluster for molecular modeling calculations is dedicated to departmental initiatives.

Use of these resources by students begins in the first year, in CHE 105 and 106, and continues throughout the 200-, 300- and 400-level course-related and research laboratories.
