Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory

Brief Description :

The laboratory is designed to illustrate the principles and practice of physical and inorganic chemistry and to introduce the students to the techniques and instruments used in modern chemical research. Experimental work related to gravimetric and volumetric analysis is conducted. The synthesis of inorganic complexes are performed in the laboratory. Instrumental approaches and modern spectroscopic techniques are applied to the characterization of compounds prepared. The energetics and rates of chemical reactions in addition to the study of metal corrosion and its control are also conducted in the laboratory. The inorganic laboratory is also used by general science, biology, and health science students for applied experiments related to inorganic chemistry. It is equipped with 4 main hoods and ventilators. Its overall capacity is about 40 students.
