Analytical Chemistry Labs

Research in analytical chemistry is essential for developing new approaches to address various qualitative and quantitative aspects of the ecological, clinical bio-materials along with Nano-sciences and to provide the tools for chemical analysis and testing of living organism by active molecules and various materials at trace and ultra-trace levels. As a result, there is great demand for well-educated analytical chemists in the academia, health and industrial sectors. The student space in each lab is three meter square (3 m2) for each student, Analytical chemistry staff in the Department of Chemistry has various significant instruments for purifying and analyzing of unknown sample, the instruments in these Labs are; gas chromatography (GC), Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (AES), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and Cyclic Voltammetry (CV), Analytical labs are classified as:

Organic Chemistry Labs:

 

Organic chemistry Labs are focuses mainly on carbon-rich molecules. Most molecules found in nature and molecules that modulate the function of natural compounds are organic compounds. Organic synthesis plays a prominent role in the research programs of the Department members. Some develop new catalysts for the synthesis of organic and inorganic compounds. Others use some chemical transformation reagents in the process of drug discovery process. The student space in each lab is two meter square (2 m2) per one student, the instruments in the Labs are; Infra-red (IR) instrument, Circulating cooler, UV-Light (Lamp), Infra-red Oven, Polarimetry instrument and Ultrasonic processors.

Petroleum Chemistry Labs:

Petroleum Chemistry labs are used by industrial and petroleum chemistry undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers, in these Labs a number of separation techniques are used by researchers to separate a mixture of crude oil to its components and to test the quality of petroleum products, the instruments are; Octane number analyzer, Auto distillation unit, Pour point and flash point closed cup. Crude oil is a mixture of different hydrocarbons, the most common hydrocarbons found in the chemistry of petroleum are alkanes, these are also sometimes knows as linear or branched hydrocarbons. A significant percentage of the remaining compound is the made up of cycloalkanes and aromatic hydrocarbons. The student space in each lab is three meter square (3 m2) for one student, these labs are:
