Facilities & Equipment

The Department of Chemistry is located in the Pell Hall/Life Science Building on the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University. Building facilities include research and classroom laboratories, equipment rooms and storage facilities. Laboratories are used for both faculty and undergraduate research projects. At C.W. Post, we are committed to providing our chemistry students with hands-on experience using sophisticated technology and equipment. Please see the list below of instrumentation and equipment for students taking chemistry courses or pursuing the bachelor’s degrees in chemistry or forensic science. Access to state-of-the-art equipment prepares students well for graduate school or their first job.
