The Chemistry Department Shared Instrumentation Facility is staffed by Dr. Chin Lin, Dr. Chunhua Hu, Dr. Trinanjana Mandal and Dr. Joel Tang. The facility houses many of the Department's major research instruments including NMR spectrometers, mass spectrometers, polarimeter, electronic and vibrational spectrophotometers, X-ray diffractometers, and electron microscope. A diverse community of users access the facility, including faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and numerous community members. Colleagues access the facility from other departments, the NYU School of Medicine, and other local institutions.
The instruments are open to all Chemistry Department research groups. New users should contact Dr. Chin Lin for training schedules. Researchers outside of the Chemistry Department may also apply to Dr. Lin to use the instruments in the facility.
The Shared Instrumentation Facility was constructed through the support of the National Center for Research Resources, National Institutes of Health under Research Facilities Improvement, Award Number C06 RR-16572-01.
