The analytical laboratories are equipped with state of the art equipment for a large variety of analyses. These include gas and liquid chromatographic separations together with Mass spectrometric detectors for the analysis of unknown compounds as well as quantification of specific chemicals of interest. Also we have various Atomic spectrometric instruments such as SEM-EDX, Atomic Absorption Spectrometers and an Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer for elemental analysis of unknown substances and quantification of trace levels of metals. Two new NMR instruments are available for the investigation of molecular structure of organic materials.
These facilities are available for both undergraduate teaching and projects as well as for research and can be used by any of the Schools or Services in the University.
