The instrumentation available within Chemistry includes:
These instruments are mainly contained in instrument laboratories where technical assistance is available on request. The Australian Centre for Research On Separation Science houses state of the art ThermoFisher Scientific (Dionex) and Waters liquid chromatographs and Aglient capillary electrophoresis systems. These systems are used primarily for research purposes, however both teaching and consultation activities are undertaken using these resources. Further details are available on the ACROSS web site.
The teaching computing facilities within Chemistry consist of a computer laboratory available to chemistry students, which is serviced by a dedicated server. This laboratory is open during normal working hours. This resource is primarily for research and consultation purposes, but could also be utilised for teaching and training applications.
This laboratory is used for student work and undergraduate teaching and short course purposes. The school also contains a 28 processor parallel computing network which can be employed to perform system intensive tasks and calculations. A variety of general and academic software, including computer aided instruction programs, is available on these computers.
The Central Science Laboratory houses the following equipment: advanced Kratos Concept ISQ and Hewlett Packard 5970B mass spectrometers, Varian 400MHz NMR and Bruker FTIR spectrometers, Carlo Erba elemental analysis, stable isotope mass spectrometer, a suite of electron microscopes, and technical support in the areas of electronic, computing and mechanical workshops.
