Analytical Chemistry Services

The Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science (HECS) offers a variety of analytical chemistry services to external agencies. Facilities include: atomic absorption, infrared, ultra-violet, fluorescence, Raman and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for both solution and solid-state including multi nuclear NMR; differential scanning calorimetry, particle sizing, and X-ray powder and single crystal diffraction. Gas chromatography with FID detection (GC-FID) and with mass spectrometric detection (GC-MS) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and ion chromatography are available as is an FTIR microscope. Further mass spectrometry options are available through the Waikato Mass Spectrometry Facility and natural abundance stable isotope and radiocarbon facilities are available within the School of Science and the School of Engineering (see below). The School of Science also has equipment and expertise for sampling, analysis and geochemical/environmental interpretation of waters and sediments. A custom solution preparation service is offered.
