Welcome to NTU Chemistry Department

Instruments and Facilities

Our Department is equipped with advanced research instruments to meet a broad spectrum of research interests. Students with licenses can operate the related instruments for their research. The instruments include five high field nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers (with different resonance frequencies) and three mass spectrometers (ICP Mass, MALDI-TOF Mass, and HPLC Mass). These instruments were mainly acquired through funds provided by the Ministry of Education. Many of the cutting-edge instruments are under the operation of the Instrumentation Center (http://www.hic.ch.ntu.edu.tw/). These instruments are available to other research institutes and outreach programs in the Country.

Recently, the Department upgraded many instruments, such as 800 MHz and 600 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers. In the future, the Department will make use of recent breakthroughs in the technology of spectrometers to provide high quality analysis so that students can obtain data with maximum accuracy. Highly sensitive spectrometers based on the state-of-the-art techniques will be established for high throughput analysis to help students from a wide range of research areas in chemistry and other disciplines.
