The modern equipment in the Chemistry department's teaching and research laboratories includes a number of instruments available to undergraduates for both study and research. The departments instrumentation includes electrochemical equipment, spectrophotometers of several types, a vacuum dry box, GC's, LC's, high intensity mercury lamp, Langmuir-Blodgett trough, vacuum ovens and furnaces. The chemistry department also maintains collaborations with Linfield's Physics, LRI and Biology departments. In addition, the department maintains its own LAN, and several clusters of PCs for student use.
