Chemistry Resources

Single Crystal X-Ray Diffractometer by Rigaku Oxford Diffraction.

Acquired in 2020 for use in research and academic laboratory courses. XRD is employed for characterization of compounds from synthetic research. It is utilized for determination of crystal structure in terms of atom positions. For molecular compounds, XRD is used to determine absolute molecular structure.

Fourier-transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) by Thermo Fisher Scientific-US.

Acquired in 2017 , FTIR is a technique used to gain an infrared spectrum of absorption or  discharge of a solid, liquid, or gas. The spectrometer collects high-resolution data over a wide spectral area. It is used in research to characterize molecular structure. It is an instrument utilized in multiple academic laboratory classes.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) by Nanalysis Corporation.

Acquired in 2020, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectrometer is used as an analytical chemistry technique in cross-checking and research for deeming the content and pureness of the molecular structure sample. At Cameron University, it is employed in several academic laboratory classes..

Microwave Synthesizer by CEM Corporation.

The microwave synthesizer performs reactions at reflux, under a nitrogen environment, or under pressure. The microwave synthesizer is utilized in research and it is also utilized in our organic chemistry laboratory. 

Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) by TA Instruments

Acquired in 2017, this instrument measures temperatures and heat flows associated with thermal transitions in a material. This instrument is utilized in biochemical research and physical research.
