Analytical Chemistry Services
Chemistry offers a variety of analytical services to external agencies. Facilities include atomic absorption, infrared, ultra-violet, luminescence, electron spin resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for both solution and solid-state, along with differential scanning calorimetry, particle sizing, and X-ray powder diffraction. Gas chromatography with FID detection (GC-FID) and with mass spectrometric detection (GC-MS) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) 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 Faculty of Science and Engineering (see below). Chemistry also has equipment and expertise for sampling, analysis and geochemical/environmental interpretation of waters and sediments.
