The undergraduate laboratories are newly renovated.
The development of practical, hands-on laboratory skills is essential in the training of chemists and biochemists.
Our labs ensure that the students work in an efficient, modern and very safe environment.
- First year lab information can be found at the 59-140 and 59-141 websites
- Upper year lab information at the Undergraduate Chemistry Laboratories page
The following courses have lab sections that run in our new laboratories:
- 59-110 - Topics in General Chemistry
- 59-140 - Introductory Chemistry I
- 59-141 - Introductory Chemistry II
- 59-230 - Introductory Organic Chemistry I
- 59-235 - Introductory Organic Chemistry II
- 59-240 - Introductory Physical Chemistry I
- 59-241 - Introductory Physical Chemistry II
- 59-251 - Introductory Inorganic Chemistry II
- 59-261 - Introductory Inorganic Chemistry II
- 59-320 - Analytical Chemistry
- 59-321 - Principles of Instrumental Analysis
- 59-330 - Spectroscopic Characterization of Molecules
- 59-331 - Intermediate Inorganic Chemistry II
- 59-350 - Organometallic Chemistry
- 59-380 - Biotechnology Laboratory
Newly renovated laboratories include brand new state-of-the-art six foot fumehoods and elephant trunks.
Elephant trunks are used like miniature fumehoods for conducting reactions on the benchtop without exposure to noxious fumes.
A multi-purpose instrumentation laboratory is used for analytical and physical chemistry.
Here are some second and third year students in action in the analytical chemistry lab.
First year laboratories are also newly renovated.
Here are students in the second year biochemistry laboratory.
Students in the inorganic laboratory do much of their synthetic work in the fumehoods.
This includes the use of vacuum lines in their preparations.
Upper year laboratories are manned by senior graduate students.
We consider laboratory experience to be an important part of chemical education.
We also hope that the students enjoy the laboratory component of their studies!
