The research facilities at the University of Arkansas are among the best in the area with an excellent selection of well-maintained, state-of-the-art equipment. These facilities, along with an atmosphere that encourages collaboration, allow students and faculty to pursue competitive work at the frontiers of their fields. Participation by undergraduates is strongly encouraged.

The Chemistry facilities are located in three buildings — the Chemistry Building (CHEM) which houses the main office suite, faculty offices, and classroom space; the Chemistry Research Building (CHBC) which houses research laboratories; and Discovery Hall (DISC) which houses the undergraduate teaching laboratories. Below lists the major facilities housed in Chemistry.

The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility located in CHBC includes a suite of NMR spectrometers, a helium recovery system, and an ESR spectrometer.

The Statewide Mass Spectrometry Facility, a state-of-the-art mass spectrometry resource, was established in 1999 by a combination of National Science Foundation and state funding. Through the associated grants, these centers and the department have acquired a significant number of cutting-edge instruments.

The COBRE Center for Protein Structure and Function  was established in 2000 with a $9.6 million COBRE grant from the National Institutes of Health National Center for Research Resources. The center has been supporting a number of faculty research programs.

The X-ray Diffraction Facility houses a Rigaku XtaLAB Synergy-S diffractometer newly acquired through NIH INBRE supplement award for single crystal X-ray crystallography, and a Rigaku MiniFlex II powder X-ray diffractometer for powder diffraction.

The department also has access to the research facilities on campus with walking distance. Below lists the major research facilities on campus.

The Arkansas Nano & Bio Materials Characterization Facility houses a number of state-of-the-art characterization tools for nano & bio materials such as transmission electron microscopes, scanning electron microscopes, X-ray powder diffractometer, X-ray photoelectron emission spectroscopy, confocal fluorescence microscope, and confocal Raman microscope.

The Arkansas High Performance Computing Center is a campus wide provider of supercomputing resources for teaching and research by students and faculty. For nearly a decade, the university has strongly supported high-performance computing as a tool for enabling scientific discovery and making researchers more productive. With support from the university, the National Science Foundation and the state of Arkansas, the center has fielded two Top500 supercomputers and currently offers ~13,000 compute cores, making it among the largest and most capable academic systems in the world.
