Analytical Chemistry Core Lab

Supplying advanced techniques for custom and routine chemical analysis.

Contact the lab

The Analytical Chemistry Core Lab houses a diverse range of state-of-the-art instrumentation in a 1400-square-meter user facility. We specialize in the analysis of inorganic and organic constituents in most solid and liquid materials. In addition, we have the capabilities to characterize thermal, mechanical, optical and electrical properties of materials.

The Analytical Chemistry Core Lab offers four functional areas

The inorganics analysis unit houses some of the most widely used pieces of equipment in analytical chemistry. Our scientists are experienced with a variety of techniques to determine the elemental composition of variable materials including petroleum products, environmental samples, biological tissues or artificial polymers. We also feature instruments to quantify nutrients and organic carbon in fresh and sea water. Most of the lab’s instruments for thermal and mechanical analysis of materials are also overseen by this group of scientists.

The surface analysis section of the lab focuses on the characterization of powders and large solid particles. Our staff scientists specialize in measurements of particle size, surface area, pore size and volume, chemical adsorption, surface energy, water vapor sorption, activity and selectivity of catalysts, and many more. The molecular spectroscopy section characterizes materials based on interactions between their molecular bonds and electromagnetic radiation resulting in absorption, emission and scattering.
