With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, and Trinity University, students have access to 500 MHz and 300 MHz NMR spectrometers as well as a recently installed electrospray ionization time-of-flight (ESI-TOF) mass spectrometer, all housed in the new Center for the Sciences and Innovation. These instruments enable many ongoing research projects and also support instructional laboratory courses at Trinity.
While the high initial cost of modern high-resolution NMR and mass spectrometers and the associated cost of maintenance and cryogens prevent many educational institutions from using these powerful tools, San Antonio-area schools have access to our instrumentation for analysis of compounds they have synthesized in experiments at their home institutions. Please contact Adam Urbach (aurbach [at] trinity.edu) to discuss options.
Home of the chemistry department, the state-of-the-art facility features modern technology in classrooms and laboratories for faculty and students. Equipped with advanced instrumentation and technology, students and faculty are able to conduct highly sophisticated research projects on campus.
