Technical Services

Advanced instrumentation is an essential component of our research. The Chemistry Department and individual research groups collectively maintain a multi-million dollar inventory of state-of-the-art hardware and software that is constantly being updated.

The Department maintains in-house services for mass spectrometry,  atomic absorption analysis, and X-ray crystallography. The Department also maintains on-site glassblowing, machine, and electronics shops to repair and fabricate scientific apparatus that are not available commercially.

Our shops are available for contract jobs on a recharge basis to outside UM entities.   To start the process, download and submit the following External Services Request Form.
