Chemistry

Facilities

The chemistry facilities within the CSI Physical science department are outstanding, especially for a community college. We incorporate advanced technology into our general and organic chemistry labs, preparing our students for advanced laboratory work.

We have three dedicated chemistry laboratories, as well as a preparation room, a stock room, and a special projects lab. Two of the laboratories will accommodate approximately 24 students each, and the third is designed for 18 students and used for organic chemistry labs. Sets of laptop computers and Vernier digital interfaces are available for use during labs.  All of the labs are modern and housed together in the Evergreen building.

In addition to the benchtop laboratory interfaces, we utilize a number of sophisticated, major instruments in our laboratories.

Nicolet FTIR 200 A Nicolet FTIR 200 with dedicated computer, printer and KBr hydrolytic press was installed in July, 2006.
   
Anasazi EFT-60 An Anasazi EFT-60 was installed in April, 2000. It is an upgrade of a Varian EM360L CW instrument. A C13 accessory was installed with the upgrade. All of the original controls have been replaced by a standard microcomputer and two units from Anasazi Instruments. Only the "box" containing the original magnet and sample compartment remains from the original Varian instrument.
