The Chemistry Department is located on the third floor of Copley Science Center.
The Department has five teaching laboratories, four research laboratories, one multimedia
classroom, and additional rooms for housing instruments.
Through the generous support of Randolph-Macon, the National Science Foundation,
the Keck Foundation, the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, and the Jessie Ball
DuPont Foundation, we have acquired a wide array of research-quality instrumentation.
We are among the best-equipped chemistry departments in the country with regard
to quantity and quality of instruments and student to instrument ratio. Our
students are trained to use and optimize each of these instruments via laboratory
courses and through their own research projects. Recent graduates from our program
have commented on how useful the experience and training with these instruments
has been in their jobs or in their graduate school studies.
Our instrumental holdings are divided into three major categories. Click on the
