Instrumentation

The Chemistry Department at the University of Redlands is housed in new facilities that include state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories.

All rooms are wired for internet access and most classrooms are "smart" with computer-interfaced projection capabilities. All laboratories have constant-volume hoods and deionized water from spigots at the sinks.

We have access to environment rooms, dark-room facilities, a dedicated computing facility (10 computer stations with molecular modelling software), a dedicated instrument laboratory, and a laser laboratory.

Instruments available for teaching labs and research include:
