Chemistry and Biochemistry


The ability of our students to succeed at research depends on their having the tools they need. The Chemistry and Biochemistry department at BYU has state-of-the-art equipment in support of our research program. The Ezra Taft Benson Science Building is a 190,000-square-foot, $30-million building that includes state-of-the-art facilities for all of the department's teaching and research functions. The department has extensive equipment in support of research and teaching, including NMR, mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallography, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry. The department also has access to extensive electron microscopy equipment in two facilities on campus, as well as advanced DNA analysis capabilities via the BYU DNA Sequencing Center. Additionally, individual research groups maintain specialized equipment to support their own research. Feel free to browse our list of equipment to learn more about our research capabilities.
