Undergraduate Laboratories

The undergraduate laboratories are newly renovated.

The development of practical, hands-on laboratory skills is essential in the training of chemists and biochemists.

Our new labs ensure that the students work in an efficient, modern and very safe environment.

First year lab information can be found at the 59-140 and 59-141 websites
Upper year lab information at the Undergraduate Chemistry Laboratories page

Visit the photo galleries of our new laboratories below!

The following courses have lab sections that run in our new laboratories:

Newly renovated laboratories include brand new state-of-the-art six foot fumehoods and elephant trunks.   
Elephant trunks are used like miniature fumehoods for conducting reactions on the benchtop without exposure to noxious fumes.   
A multi-purpose instrumentation laboratory is used for analytical and physical chemistry.   
Here are some second and third year students in action in the analytical chemistry lab.   
First year laboratories are also newly renovated   
A few of the older laboratories still exist, shown here for contrast.   
Old fumehoods were in pretty bad shape, and are pretty badly scarred from years of use.   
New fumehoods come with taps for all services and alarms which indicate if the height of the fumehood window is properly set.   
Students in the inorganic laboratory do much of their synthetic work in the fumehoods.   
This includes the use of vacuum lines in their preparations.   
Upper year laboratories are manned by senior graduate students.   
Here are students in the second year biochemistry laboratory.   
We consider laboratory experience to be an important part of chemical education.   
We also hope that the students enjoy the laboratory component of their studies!
