The main facilities of the department are located in Hurtig Hall. Substantial additional space and equipment are available in the Barnett Institute of Chemical Analysis and Materials Science in Mugar Life Sciences building and Egan Engineering/Science Research Center. Major research equipment includes:

  • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers (300, 400, 500, 700 MHz)
  • Numerous mass spectrometers (GC-MS, HPLC-MS, MS/MS, MALDI-TOF, ESI-MS)
  • Electron paramagnetic resonance spectrometers (9 GHz, 220 GHz quasioptical)
  • Liquid and gas chromatographs, capillary electrophoresis, and atomic emission and absorption spectrometers
  • X-ray diffractometers, electron microscopes, and thermal analyzers and calorimeters
  • Electrochemical workstation with rotating disk and micro electrodes
  • Ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and Raman spectrometers, including IR-micro imaging
  • Ultrafast laser and photon counting systems, low-temperature optical dewar
  • Moessbauer spectrometers and low-temperature facilities
  • High resolution field emission scanning electron microscope
  • Electroanalytical, polarographic, and coulometric
  • Electrophoresis: CEC/PEC/TLC, SDS-PAGE, IEF, HPCE, immuno-CE, affinity-CE
  • Polypeptide and polynucleotide synthesizers
