Facilities and Services
Access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, research facilities, and support facilities is an important aspect of conducting research.
Review the science facilities reopen plan for the most up to date information regarding reservations and processes due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Facilities on the Portland State campus include state-of the-art gas and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry instrumentation, 400 and 600 MHz NMR spectrometers, phosphorimaging, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, lithography, clean-room facilities, an exposure chamber, and various portable analytical instruments. Please use the links below to explore some of the facilities and instrumentation available to researchers in the department of chemistry, as well as to outside users. Use of instrumentation may be subject to fees, a list of the University's approved fees and corresponding policies are available on the University Financial Services website.
The Department of Chemistry reserves the right to grant facility access to individuals based on internal review. Users are expected to abide by Portland State University Policies & Codes of Conduct. Those who fail to uphold these policies and/or maintain a safe working environment (which includes but is not limited to: being considerate of other users, not leaving chemical messes/safety hazards, and not compromising the safety of yourself or others) may be excluded from utilizing departmental facilities.
