General Information

Bruker D2PHASER and D8DISCOVER XRD SystemsState-of-the-art instrumentation is one of the hallmarks of the graduate program. Students benefit from direct interaction with two full-time Ph.D. level instrumentation managers, and can be personally trained in the operation of a wide range of instrumentation, including:

  • Bruker Avance 300 and 500MHz NMR spectrometers
  • Single crystal- and powder x-ray diffractometers
  • Thermo Orbitrap LTQ XL high resolution mass spectrometer and Agilent ion trap mass spectrometer
  • Gas- and liquid-chromatography (including GC-MS and LC-MS)
  • Gel and capillary electrophoresis systems
  • FT-IR, EPR, Raman, UV-visible and fluorescence spectrometers
  • Prodigy ICP OES (Teledyne Leeman Labs)
  • Agilent 8800 ICP-MS/MS
  • Agilent 4200 MP-AES
  • Ethos Up Microwave-Assisted Digestion system (Milestone)
  • Electrochemical and polarographic systems

In addition, the department has important ties with many other departments on the main campus and at Wake Forest School of Medicine, thus fostering a truly interdisciplinary research environment.
