Research facilities

The chemical laboratories are well-equipped to carry out research in various areas of chemistry.

Nuclear magnetic resonance facility

This facility offers multinuclear NMR services with:

  • a Varian UNITY 400 MHz spectrometer equipped with 5 mm Inverse Detection and Broadband probes
  • a 10 mm Broadband probe
  • a Varian UNITY INOVA 300 MHz spectrometer equipped with an Automation Triple Broadband probe

X-ray crystallographic services

We offer in-house X-ray crystallographic services on a Bruker AXS SMART 1000 CCD single crystal diffractometer, equipped for data collection at cryogenic temperatures.


We have the following spectrometers:

  • EPR
  • UV
  • Laser-Raman
  • FT-IR
  • FT-Raman
  • a laser-induced fluorescence molecular beam spectrometer
  • Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometer

Other facilities

Our inorganic chemistry groups have facilities for handling reactive fluorine compounds and hygroscopic materials.

We also have a Faraday magnetic balance, remote computer terminals, chromatographs and HPLC/GPC.


Most computations are carried out on high end computational workstations housed in various departmental labs.

Researchers can also access the Atlantic Computational Excellence Network (ACENet), a world-class and large-scale high performance computing (HPC) facility.


Excellent mechanical, electronic and glass blowing workshops staffed by highly qualified technicians are available for design, construction and repair of equipment.
