The entire complex is networked for easy data transport between research site and offices and laboratories. The University network allows connection to OhioLink, the library system for all member universities in Ohio, and the Ohio Supercomputer Center. OhioLink provides quick access to a full range of scientific databases(e.g., SciFinder Scholar,Science Citation Index) and electronic journals for quick retrieval of information directly to most desktop computers. The University of Toledo recently became the 200th member of Internet 2 and the 10th member school in the State of Ohio.
|Chemistry Research Lab Module|
Upon completion of Wolfe Hall, Bowman-Oddy Laboratories, which was constructed in 1967, has been undergoing extensive renovation to support the undergraduate teaching mission of the department. Each fall the chemistry department teaches nearly 4000 students in chemistry lectures and labs primarily from the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Pharmacy and Health and Human Services. One of the new chemistry teaching labs is shown below.
|New Teaching Laboratories|
Facilities and personnel to support both the research and teaching missions of the department are numerous. The department employs two Ph.D. instrumentation specialists, two electronics technicians, a glassblower, and enjoys a close relationship with the staff of the Arts & Sciences Instrumentation Center, which is located in thebasement of Bowman-Oddy Laboratories. A modern 6000 square foot stockroom with a full-time staff of three handles all chemical needs, as well as shipping, receiving and safety issues for the department and the Bowman-Oddy/Wolfe Hall complex.

The College of Arts & Sciences Instrumentation Center is also available to University of Toledo researchers. This 7000 square foot advanced instrumentation facility houses over $5.0 million of modern instrumentation and is staffed by three Ph.D.instrumentation specialists. Located in the Center as an outgrowth of research strengths in the chemistry department is the Ohio Crystallography Consortium, which distinguishes the department and the university as the center of excellence in Ohio for crystallographic research. Single crystal X-ray analysis for small molecules, biological macromolecules, as well as powders is routine. X-ray equipment includes a Rigaku FR-E high brilliance generator equipped with a Saturn 92 CCD detector and a R-Axis IV image plate for macromolecular crystallography.
|Rigaku FRE Diffractometer|
A Rigaku Ultrax rotating anode generator equipped with a Rapid curved image plate and two Bruker CCD Smart diffractometers are also available for small molecule crystallography. In addition, a PANalytical X’Pert Pro with a X’Celerator high speed detector and low/high temperature, capillary, thin film and texture options and a Scintag XDS-2000 are used for powder analysis. In addition, a robotics laboratory for protein crystallization and screening is available.
