In January 1993, construction of the Center For Natural Sciences was complete. This state-of-the-art, $20,000,000 building is home to Ithaca College's Chemistry, Biology and Physics departments. The facility provides each professor with their own private laboratory where students can carry out a variety of different research projects. In addition to the private labs, there are also several classroom labs. It is in these highly sophisticated labs that Experimental Chemistry I-V are taught.
Yet, it is not only the building in which the Chemistry Department resides that is advanced. The department itself has a well known reputation for constantly purchasing the most up-to-date lab equipment. Undergraduate students have access to a 400 MHz NMR, FT-IR, GC-MS, HPLC, UV-Vis, Fluorimeter, Ultra Centrifuge, Biomolecular Mass Analyzer, and several Molecular Modeling Workstations. Note that at many colleges and universities, access to such equipment is restricted to graduate students.
