Facilities of the Chemistry Department

Chemical instrumentation has become an essential component of both teaching and research in modern chemistry. Few medium-sized universities nationwide can match the extensive collection of state-of-the-art chemical instrumentation currently in use in the Chemistry Department at Marshall. The acquisition of the instruments listed below has allowed the university to provide a technologically capable environment for teaching chemistry and for carrying out research in the chemical sciences. The current holdings are shown below.

Libraries

 

Optical Spectroscopy Instrumentation

Imaging Instrumentation

    A wide variety of imaging instrumentation is available through the interdepartmental Molecular and Biological Imaging Center (MBIC) core user facility located on the first floor of the Robert C. Byrd Biotechnology Science Center. The instruments cover the areas of optical, electron, and scanning probe microscopies, with a variety of accessories. For more detail on individual instruments, please visit the MBIC instrument page.
