Grote Hall

The Department of Chemistry is housed on the third and fourth floors of Grote Hall. Grote Hall underwent an eight million dollar renovation from 2008 to 2010.  This renovation resulted in new classrooms, labs, and research areas. There are two student study rooms: Grote 326 (a quiet room) and Grote 324 (home to the chemistry club and more study tables).

Library resources include thousands of hard copy chemistry books, on-line access to the approximately 50 journals published by the American Chemical Society (ACS), access to all electronic books published by the ACS, various scientific searching programs, access to the world chemical literature through SciFinder Scholar searching and Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  For chemistry resources go to http://guides.lib.utc.edu/chemistry The department also offers a new PC computer lab in Grote 316. This lab operates from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekdays. Each computer has Internet access and Microsoft Office, as well as molecular modeling (Scigress) and other specialized chemistry software. The computers are networked to a laser printer that is part of a pay to print GoPrint station.

Located within the department is scientific instrumentation with a value of about one million dollars. This includes a superconducting 400 MHz Fourier Transform Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer (NMR), a Single Chrystal X-ray Diffractometer, a Liquid-Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer (LCMS), a Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer, (GCMS) as well as other modern equipment appropriate for an outstanding undergraduate program in Chemistry. A list of some instruments is below.
