The Heim Building viewed from the southeast.


The Department of Chemistry has occupied the $10 million Heim Biology and Chemistry building, one of the finest undergraduate science facilities in the East, since 1990. The three-level building has over 63,000 square feet and houses the Departments of both Biology and Chemistry.

The Department has excellent instrumentation.  We possess state of the art Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR, National Science Foundation grant, 1998) and Mass Spectrometric (MS, National Science Foundation and Dreyfus Foundation grants, 2000) facilities, a Glovebox and high quality Infrared (IR) and Ultraviolet-Visible (UV-VIS) instrumentation (all three from National Science Foundation grant, 2001).  The department also possesses three capillary Gas Chromatographs (GC), a High Pressure liquid Chromatograph (HPLC), a polarograph, and a polarimeter.
