JOEL 300 MHz NMR spectrometer

The Department's JEOL ECX 300 MHz NMR Spetrometer, equipped with an autosampler. Chemistry students in upper division courses get to use this instrument and many others.


The Chemistry Department at Frostburg State University is home to modern undergraduate teaching and research laboratories and state-of-the-art equipment. The laboratories are housed in the Compton Science Center, erected in 2003.


The Chemistry Department has six teaching laboratories: two dedicated to general chemistry, one to organic chemistry, one to analytical chemistry, one to physical chemistry, and one to biochemistry.

The Chemistry Department has four dedicated research laboratories: one for synthetic chemistry, one for environmental chemistry, one for shared instrumentation, and one for interdisciplinary research. The organic, analytical, physical, and biochemistry laboratories are also used for undergraduate research.


All chemistry majors and minors get the opportunity to use state-of-the-art instrumentation in their upper division courses. Some of the instruments availabe for use include:
