Two components exist in regards to instrumentation in the Chemistry Department at UNT.
(1) Commercial instrumentation is available to facilitate all aspects of our faculty's research programs. Two nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, an x-ray crystallographic suite, and very significant computational resources are available. All of these facilities are maintained by designated staff members. Other traditional instrumentation is available such as FT-IR and UV spectrometers. Students and faculty also have access to UNT's Center for Advanced Research and Technology (CART). CART is home to a variety of sophisticated characterization and processing instruments.
(2) Several of our faculty members are involved in instrument development. Research challenges including plasma etching process characterization, fundamental gas phase kinetics, preparative mass spectrometry, and time domain radiofrequency spectroscopy are achieved through the construction of unique experimental tools. The instrumentation developed by our faculty members allows us to ask, and answer, very unique questions.
