Department Instrumentation

Instruments may have been purchased by the department, typically to be used for both teaching and routine research applications. The division that uses the instrument for teaching purposes is in charge. A faculty member in that division should be contacted by potential users.

Instruments in this category include:

  • Spectronic 200 uv-vis recording spectrophotometer (Analytical)
  • IBM voltammetric analyzer (Analytical)
  • Perkin-Elmer 204 spectrofluorometer (Analytical)
  • Schimadzu gas chromatograph (Analytical)
  • differential scanning calorimeter (Physical)
  • dual beam 100 MHz oscilloscope (Analytical)
  • Cary Eclipse Fluorimeter (Analytical)
  • Cary 50 UV-Vis spectrophotometer (Physical)
  • Spectronic 1001 uv-vis spectrophotometer (Physical)
  • Parr bomb calorimeter (Physical)
  • dipole meter (Physical)
  • osmometer (Physical)
  • thermal analysis instrumentation (Physical)
  • preparative gas chromatograph (Organic)
  • solvent purification systems (Organic)
  • Analytical HPLC, including Chiral HPLC
  • FT-IR (Organic room G212 and Instrumentation lab room 148)
  • inert atmospheric glove box (Inorganic)

Faculty Instrumentation

Several major instruments belong to specific research groups in the department. These instruments have usually been partially or fully purchased with funds granted to the faculty member in charge. This faculty member sets the policy regarding instrument use. Faculty will often let outside researchers use their instruments or run samples on them if this does not interfere with their group's ongoing research. A graduate student interested in using one of these instruments should contact the faculty in charge:

  • SLM spectrofluorometer (Seitz)
  • rapid diode array spectrophotometer (Chasteen)
  • EPR and ENDOR spectrometers (Chasteen)
  • slab electrophoresis equipment (Chasteen)
  • stopped-flow apparatus (Chasteen)
  • pH Stat automatic titrator (Chasteen)
  • rapid freeze-quench kinetics apparatus (Chasteen)
  • HPLC equipment (Tomellini)
  • FT-IR spectometers (Tomellini)
  • capillary electrophoresis equipment (Tomellini)
  • capillary electrophoresis (Chasteen)
  • Langmuir-Blodgett trough (Tomellini)
  • electronic polarimeter
  • LCQ electrospray Paul trap mass spectrometer
  • bioanalytical systems electrochemical analyzer (Miller)
  • TA thermal gravimetric analyzer (Miller)
  • isothermal titration calorimeter (Chasteen)
  • differential scanning calorimeter (Chasteen)
  • the Center for Structural Biology (Reinhold)

University Instrumentation Center (UIC)

The University Instrumentation Center is a University-wide core facility dedicated to the advancement of the research and academic missions of UNH and the surrounding research community. The UIC is open and available to all faculty, staff, and students as well as non-UNH academic entities, government, and industrial customers.
