The department of chemistry is dedicated to providing our students with access to research experiences both on campus and off.  Our students work with the faculty of Seattle Pacific University on research projects as well as taking part in internships and National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) around the country.  The results of these projects are shown nationally and locally at scientific meetings including the American Chemical Society (ACS) National and Regional meetings and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) National meeting.

Our facilities in our new building include:

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Ultraviolet Visible Spectroscopy (UV-Vis)
  • Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS)
  • High pressure liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)
  • BIAcore Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR)
  • Probe Sonficiation
  • Fluorometry
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Fluorescence Microscopy
  • Dedicated Undergraduate Computer Laboratory with Analytical, Graphical, and Theoretical Chemistry Software
  • Internet wired and wireless laboratories and classrooms
  • Innovative use of technology including a classroom response system (CRS)

A number of our students are currently working on research projects with the faculty.  Listed below are the web sites where additional information can be found about individual research groups.  Please do not hesitate to ask any of the faculty for more information about our research and how you can become involved in it.
