Abstract:

A Department of Defense DOD Infrastructure grant was awarded to Benedict College in 1997. The primary purpose of the award was to enhance undergraduate education in the physical sciences through acquisition of state-of-the-art instrumentations. As part of the project, the College sought to broaden approaches to collaborative research by faculty and students. To support the science program, Benedict College purchased one each of the following equipment Bruckner Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Gas Chromatograph and Mass Spectrometer, Resonant Ultrasound Spectrometer, FT-Infrared Spectrometer, Perkin Elmer Atomic Absorption Spectrometer, Computer and HP LaserJet Printer. All instruments have been installed, tested, and are operational. The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance NMR is housed in a redesigned and renovated dedicated laboratory space. The Atomic Absorption Spectrometer is utilized as a teaching instrument and through its utilization, helps in collaborative research by Benedict and school-based faculty members. The Gas Chromatograph and Mass Spectrometer is utilized primarily by laboratory students in helping them to reach higher levels of reading and analyzing spectra from the machine.
