The chemistry department of Trinity Western University is housed in the south wing of the Neufeld Science Centre, which has been home to the department since its construction in 1994.
The facilities include two large teaching laboratories where most of the lab courses are taught, as well as a prep room, chemical storage room and a faculty- and student-used instrument room. Through the various lab courses offered, our undergraduate students receive "hands-on" experience on a range of modern instrumental techniques including GC-MS, UV/Vis, Atomic Absorption/Flame Emission Spectroscopy, FT-IR, HPLC, and FT-NMR spectrometry. In addition, the department includes molecular modeling software which is integrated into a number of courses.
In addition there are two laboratories focused on faculty and student research, one recently built containing more highly advanced instrumentation. Students involved in research with faculty have in addition to the above, access to gloveboxes, a Bruker Autoflex Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (MALDI-TOF-MS), a Bruker Ascend 400 MHz NMR, and HPLC-ESI-MS.
