(A) Biochemistry Research Suite: $40,000
Research in the biochemistry research suite focuses on the structure of biological macromolecules. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) equipment for purification and UV-Vis and fluorescence spectrometers for quantification and characterization of samples is used in conjunction with state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers to characterize the structure of both small and large biological macromolecules. The suite will also have several molecular modeling work stations that will enable faculty and students to determine the structure of biological macromolecules from NMR data and study ligand binding to nucleic acids and proteins. Collaborative projects are ongoing with research groups at the University at Buffalo and The Scripps Research Institute.

(B) NMR Room: $100,000
The 300MHz teaching nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer will be located in this space adjacent to the teaching labs that extensively use this important analytical tool.

(C) Moos Organic Lab
In this laboratory students extensively use spectroscopic methods to identify different functional groups and the structures of organic compounds. Advanced labs involve the synthesis, isolation and characterization of organic compounds. Donated by Dr. Walter Moos and Dr. Susan Miller in memory of Walter’s father Dr. Gilbert E. Moos, who taught Organic Chemistry for many years.

(D) Kumler Spectroscopic Instrument Room
This lab will contain infrared and ultraviolet/visible spectrometers for the identification and quantification of chemicals. Donated by his former students in honor of Dr. Philip Kumler.

(E) Analytical/Physical Lab: $50,000
The Analytical Laboratory Courses rely heavily on the use of analytical instrumentation for the quantification, characterization and identification of chemical species; students get extensive experience utilizing chemical instrumentation. In the Physical Chemistry Laboratory course students engage in experiments that apply the laws of kinetics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics and statistical thermodynamics to chemical systems.

(F) Analytical Instrument Room: $5,000
The spectroscopic and chromatographic instrumentation in this lab will support the characterization of advanced synthesis, biochemical, physical and analytical experiments.

(G) Inorganic/Advanced Experimental Biochemistry: $50,000
This laboratory will be outfitted with the capability to perform inert-atmosphere inorganic and organometallic syntheses and analysis by spectral, solid-state and electrochemical methods. State of the art biochemical and molecular techniques are taught in Advanced Experimental Biochemistry including techniques such as polymerase chain reaction, oligonucleotide synthesis and gel electrophoresis.

(H) Environmental Research Suite: $40,000
Research students are engaged in the isolation, purification and analysis of air and water-born semi-volatile organic and inorganic pollutants found in the great lakes area. Components, such as nitrate, sulfate, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), PCBs, dioxins, and mercury are detected by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). This work is funded by NYSERDA and the EPA and is done in collaboration with researchers at Clarkson University and SUNY Oswego.

(I) Research Lab: $25,000

(J) Major Alice Conference Room
Floor to ceiling glass will overlook the south garden and playing field. In memory of Major Alice M. Sam, USAF RET. and Adele R. Sam. Donated by Barbara A. Sam and Grace M. Sam.

(K) Chromatography Instrument Room: $10,000
This space will be dedicated to high performance gas chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), mass spectrometry and x-ray diffraction experiments.

(L) Synthetic Research Suite: $40,000
Students and faculty collaborate to synthesize and characterize novel inorganic, organometallic and organic molecules. Advanced air-sensitive technique are required for some of the syntheses and traditional separation procedures aid in product purification. New molecules are characterized by spectroscopic and x-ray diffraction studies.

(M) Research Lab: $25,000

(N) Research Lab: $25,000

(FO) Faculty Offices: $10,000
Faculty offices will be paired and placed between teaching and research labs.

(O1) Roth Family Study Alcove donated by the Roth Family

(O2) Lawson Study Alcove
Donated in honor of Eleanor & William Lawson by Drs. Holly & Jerry Lawson-Keister

(O3-O6) Study Alcoves: $5,000
In front of each office pair, spaces will be furnished with benches and writing boards, allowing for informal teaching.

(O3) Secker Study Alcove
Donated by Dr. Christopher '93 and Cathy Cahill in memory of Robert Secker (Class of 1993).
