Labs are well supplied with state-of-the-art equipment needed to carry out contemporary research projects successfully and conveniently. Major instrumentation for research includes 7 NMR spectrometers and one EPR spectrometers, 4 mass spectrometers, 11 lasers, and 1 CCD X-ray diffractometer, as well as a large number of additional pieces of equipment.
Research is further supported by such specialized equipment as a Nicolet Nexus-870 FTIR system with capabilities to acquire time-resolved and 2-D data sets, vibrational circular dichroism and plasmon resonance spectrometry. Chromatographic equipment includes both GC and and ion-trap detector GC/MS system with autosampler and high-performance HPCL systems with UV/Vis, rapid-scanning UV/Vis, and refractive index detection capabilities for analytical and preparative scale separations. The department also has a differential thermal analyzer, an electrochemical analyzer, photochemical and flow-photolysis reactors and an atomic absorption spectrometer.
