Laboratory Facilities

The Chemistry Department, in Johnson Hall of Science, houses a complete line-up of modern chemical instrumentation. These instruments enhance our fluorescence and ultraviolet spectrophotometers, and full complement of chromatographic capabilities. Outstanding computer facilites include numerous PC's for data acquisition, molecular modeling, and report writing.
