To be an outstanding chemist in the 21st century you need to understand and be able to use current instruments used to analyze chemical samples. The Trinity Chemistry Department has an impressive collection of modern instruments that faculty and students use, both in the laboratory courses and in the research lab. The department has three dedicated instrumentation labs in Clement 122, 213 and 317.
The Chemistry Department’s instruments are available for use by other scientists, either from the other science departments at Trinity, or from other local colleges and businesses. Anyone wishing to use one of our instruments should make arrangements with the department chair.
