Research Facilities

The department has a variety of moderncomputer assisted facilities very well suited fordoing chemical research. These include: Gaschromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) For analysis of pesticides residues and other environmental pollutants, essential oils, characterization of substances pharmacological, environmental.Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) For analysis of metallic elements at trace levels
Fourier transform infra red spectroscopy (FTIR)
With attenuated total reflectance (ATR) sampling technique allows to spectroscopically analyze liquid, powder, paste, gel and cream, polymer film, surface coating.
Ion-selection potentiometric voltametric analyzer. For analysis of many cations and anions in solution and corrosion analysis Bench-top NMR Spectrometer Used for organic compounds structural elucidation.
Ultraviolet and Visible Spectroscopy (UV-VIS) For analysis of many cations and anions in solution and corrosion analysis Thermogravimetry analyser (TG)
characterization of materials, studies of degradation mechanisms and reaction kinetics, determination of organic content in a sample, determination of inorganic content in a samples
Four point probe For measurement of sheets and wafers resistance
