The chemistry program at New College encourages and develops independence, collaboration, and scientific judgment. From the beginning, students work closely with faculty in a non-competitive environment, learning the skills and techniques necessary for scientific work. Tutorials, Independent Study Projects, and the senior thesis provide opportunities for intensive study on specific topics and original laboratory research.
Laboratories are well equipped for organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry projects as well as for biochemistry and molecular biology. Students enjoy access to research grade instruments in laboratory courses and research projects. Research facilities include a 400 MHz NMR spectrometer, several FTIR and UV-visible spectrophotometers, a fluorimeter, high-pressure liquid chromatographs, inert atmosphere glove boxes, electrochemistry equipment, a GC-MS, a real-time PCR machine, a digital imaging system, and a state-of-the-art microwave spectrometer.
