The School of Chemistry & Materials Science occupies 27,600 square feet of space in the Thomas Gosnell Hall (8) and the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science (76). This space is divided between teaching laboratories (13.5k ft2), research laboratories (8,300 ft2), support facilities (3,700 ft2), and offices (2,100 ft2).
The department has an assortment of state-of-the-art scientific instruments available for student use both in classes and in research. Most of these instruments are computer networked for easy data transfer.
A list of the Department's instrumentation can be found to the right.
For help with or questions about these instruments please contact Thomas Allston, the Department's Instrument Specialist.
New NMR Spectrometer
The School of Chemistry & Materials Sciencet recently acquired a 500 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer. This spectrometer is used to determine the structure and dynamics of molecules, as well as images of plants and materials. Pictured are Dr. Destler, President of RIT, and Dr. Rosenberg at the ribbon cutting ceremony.
The School of Chemistry & Materials Science at RIT has a wide range of analytical instrumentation which can be used to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis of chemical or materials samples. Our well-trained faculty, staff, and students are experienced with a wide variety of analysis. Contact our instrumentation specialist to discuss how we can help you with your analytical and characterization needs.
