Our classrooms and specialized research laboratories are located in the Cooper Physical Science Building.

We have a variety of high-tech scientific equipment, which you are encouraged to use. A lot of our instruments are the same kind you would find on the popular show CSI. The best part is that you just don’t watch your professors use the equipment; you actually use it yourself.

Ball State also offers excellent library facilities and several computer centers. Our department has a new computer lab and several recently remodeled teaching and research laboratories.

Departmental instrumentation includes:

  • 400 and 300 MHz multinuclear NMR spectrometers

  • Gas Chromatographs
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatographs 
  • Fluorescence spectrometers
  • Flame AA/AE and graphite furnace AA
  • Differential Scanning Calorimeter
  • Laser Flash Photolysis

Our department also houses a variety of computer workstations for your use. These workstations are equipped with a wide variety of chemistry related software packages.
