The University of Wyoming Department of Chemistry boasts five primary facilities containing state-of-the-art instrumentation.
The Department of Chemistry currently operates a total of six NMR spectrometers: a 600 MHz Bruker Avance III spectrometer (purchased in 2011, with solution and solid state capabilities), a 400 MHz Bruker DRX-400 NMR spectrometer (purchased in 2011), a 300 MHz Bruker AVANCE WB microimaging instrument with liquid, solid, rheo, and imaging NMR capabilies (purchased in 2013), and three Anazasi Ef-60 NMR spectrometers.
The Department of Chemistry currently operates Kratos Ultra DLD X-ray Photoemission Spectrometer (XPS). (Purchased in 2013)
The Department of Chemistry's Instrument Lab houses a Thermo-Electron LCQ Classic Electrospray Mass Spectrometer.
The Department of Chemistry operates EPR Bruker EMX spectrometer.
The Department of Chemistry owns a Bruker-AXS Smart Apex II CCD Diffractometer equipped with an Oxford Cobra Cryosystem.
The High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM) Facility at the University of Wyoming features the powerful FEI Tecnai G2 F20 200 kV (S)TEM to meet the characterization needs of the materials science community in the university and in the region. It offers up to atomic resolution imaging and complementary compositional analysis capability through energy dispersive x-ray (EDX) spectrometry. This facility is made possible with support from the School of Energy Resources.
The instrumentation and laboratories for characterization of chemical composition, crystalline structure, morphology, and fabric of solid materials are housed in the Geology and Geophysics Department at the University of Wyoming. The following instruments are available: Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM), Conventional Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis (XRF), Electron Probe Microanalysis (EPMA).
University of Wyoming has a state of the art Microscopy Core Facility (MCF). The facility currently has a Transmission Electron Microscope (Hitachi-7000), a Laser Scanning Confocal Fluorescence Microscope (Leica TCS-SP2), an epi-fluorescence microscope (Nikon TE 300), a Raman Microscope (DeltaNu ExamineR), and a Tabletop Scanning Electron Microscope (Hitachi TM-1000).
