Chemistry and Biochemistry

Research Facilities and Instrumentation

Research activities occupy more than half of the Ezra Taft Benson Science Building. Furthermore, the chemistry-related collection held by BYU's Howard B. Lee Library includes over 500,000 volumes and 9,000 journal subscriptions.

Major equipment used by and available from the BYU Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry include NMR probes, mass spectrometers, X-ray diffractors, spectrophotometers, lasers, separators, particle size analyzers, environmental chambers, ICP, thermodynamics tools (including calorimeters of all types), and molecular biology tools (including DNA synthesizers and sequencers, a recombinant DNA facility, and ultracentrifuges).

All computing facilities are fully networked, including computational chemistry and laboratory workstations, with convenient connection to supercomputing facilities and the Internet. Also serving research needs are the Department's glassblowing, machining, and electronics shops.
