A newly renovated library with stacks, computers, and great chairs, tables, and rooms for studying. The Chemistry Library is one of eleven on-campus and has a specialist librarian, Cheryl Summers, and a specialized librarian for the physical sciences, Jeremy Garritano.

General and undergraduate-level chemistry materials, including chemical engineering, are located in Brown and Clemons libraries. The Chemistry Library holds a more specialized research collection covering such topics as laser spectroscopy and  biophysical chemistry. It is in the Chemistry building, room 259.

EPR Laboratory

The department has four EPR spectrometers with multifrequency and pulsed capabilities

More Info

EPR Laboratory


Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy is an important tool for the determination of molecular structure and dynamics. Presently, the Department maintains three cw EPR spectrometers (with X- and Q-band), a Bruker ESM, a Varian E-line spectrometer, and a Bruker ELEXSYS 500. In addition, the department has an ELEXSYS580 Pulsed DEER Bruker spectrometer.

The EPR spectrometers are maintained by the Cafiso and Columbus Laboratories. If you have questions about:

NMR Spectroscopy Core Facility

The UVa NMR Spectroscopy Core Facility has eight solution spectrometers; these include 800 MHz, three 600 MHz, two 500 MHz, and two 300 MHz. Three spectrometers (800 and two 600) have cryogenically cooled probes for optimal sensitivity and two spectrometers (600 and 500) have automatic sample changers for unattended, multiple sample data collection. The spectrometers perform a wide range of experiments including those used for routine analysis of small molecules and those used for structure determination and dynamics studies of proteins and nucleic acids. The facility is supported by the UVa Medical School and the College of Arts and Sciences and is available to all. Questions should be directed to Jeff Ellena , the facility manager.

Magnetic Relaxation Dispersion Laboratory

The Bryant laboratory has a 500MHz, two 300MHz and a Fast Field Cycling (FCC) Relaxometer that are mostly geared towards magnetic relaxation dispersion measurements.The FCC relaxometer  provides temporal control of the magnetic field in the range from 10 kHz to 30 MHz with the short field-switching time. The relaxometer has temperature control capabilities. All three high-field magnets are equipped with the home-built fringe field probes. In addition both 300 MHz magnets have an iron-core electromagnets installed underneath superconducting magnets, where sample is pneumatically shuttled from the low field electromagnet to the isocenter of 7.05 T magnet.

Many of you are becoming familiar with the instrumentation you will be using for your research…so here is some help – a short presentation of the X-ray instruments available at the Nanoscale Materials Characterization Facility (NMCF) of the Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Department.

The NMCF facility serves all UVA science and engineering departments. The NMCF also houses several powerful SEM and TEM electron microscopes, as well as Auger spectroscopy and surface Raman systems. Training on all of these instruments is available.

If you are interested in using any of the X-ray instruments please contact me:
