The School of Chemistry and Biochemistry operates in six different buildings on the Georgia Tech campus. Its main administrative offices are located in the Molecular Science and Engineering (MoSE) building. Its undergraduate teaching activities are primarily located in the Clough Undergraduate Learning Center (CULC) and the Boggs building. There are research faculty and students located in the MoSE building, the Institute for Bioscience and Bioengineering (IBB), the Ford Environmental Science and Technology (ES&T) building, the Boggs building, and the Institute of Paper Science and Technology (IPST).
The school operates cost centers that provide nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry analytical services for all Georgia Tech researchers. It also offers scientific glassblowing services to all GT personnel and, through its Equipment Engineering and Support Services center, it provides school personnel with access to design, fabrication, and repair services for scientific equipment.
The NMR center provides campus researchers with access to solution NMR instruments at field strengths up to 800 MHz, solid-state NMR capabilities at up to 700 MHz, and an imaging capability for small specimens. MRI capabilities for larger specimens, including people, are available elsewhere on campus.
The Georgia Institute of Technology Mass Spectrometry Facility provides molecular mass analysis to researchers across campus as well as to other academic and industrial institutions both state- and nationwide. The Facility operates laboratories in the basement of the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences (IBB) and the Krone Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB).
The Laser Dynamics Laboratory (LDL) houses advanced lasers and laser spectroscopic equipment for time-resolved studies in the femto-to-millisecond time scale. This equipment can be accessed by collaboration with Prof. El-Sayed's research group.
The School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Equipment Engineering and Support Services center provides design, fabrication, and repair services for scientific equipment. Its services are available only to school members.
The School of Chemistry and Biochemistry provides free in-house poster printing to our faculty, researchers, and graduate students for research presentations.
Molecular Science and Engineering Building
The Molecular Science and Engineering building houses the school's main administrative offices on its second floor. The building is home to researchers from Chemistry and Biochemistry as well as many other school's from both the College of Sciences and College of Engineering.
The Institute for Bioscience and Bioengineering is home to the research laboratories of faculty from many different schools on campus, including the majority of our biochemists. It also houses several core facilities that support research in the biosciences.
The Environmental Science and Technology (ES&T) building
The ES&T building is the administrative home of the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. It houses the laboratories of researchers from many different Schools, including four faculty members from the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons (CULC)
The G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons (Clough Commons), houses classrooms, science laboratories, academic services, and commons areas. The freshman chemistry laboratories are located on the top (5th) floor of this building adjacent to a beautiful roof top garden space.
The Boggs Building
The school's upper-level undergraduate teaching laboratories are located on the second floor of this building. Boggs also houses research labs for some faculty members of the school's of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Physics, Biology, and Nuclear Engineering.
IPST houses researchers with programs examining the industrial use of wood. It is also home to facilities for characterization using electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. One faculty member from our school is based in this building.
