Materials Synthesis and Processing Lab

Location: 3347 Hoover Hall

The Materials Synthesis and Processing Laboratory is used by Mat E laboratory classes, senior design groups, and researchers. As the name suggests, this lab is widely used for synthesis and sample preparation using pellet presses and box furnaces. Researchers and upper-level undergraduate courses may use the GPC and Zetasizer Nano-NS for molecular characterization of synthetic and natural polymers and proteins.
