We support student-powered discovery. Collaborative research and small, personal classes are the hallmark of the Chemistry program of Knox College. At Knox, all of our labs are taught by faculty and upper-level classes range from 5 to 15 students.


What We Learn

The curriculum of the Chemistry program of Knox College has three levels of comprehensiveness:

  • The major requires 11 credits in general, analytical, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, advanced studies, calculus and the senior seminar. In addition to major requirements, students preparing for graduate school or professional careers in chemistry are advised to take advanced inorganic and physical chemistry, two upper-level courses in instrumentation, and a two-term sequence in general physics.
  • Students may also receive certification by the American Chemistry Society by taking, beyond the professional major, one biochemistry course and two additional advanced electives in the department (one elective may be in advanced physics or mathematics). Also recommended for ACS certification are a course in expository writing and an introductory course in computer science.

Where we work

Because modern chemistry relies heavily on sophisticated instruments, a well-equipped chemistry department is important. Knox provides all the instrumentation a chemist needs, including:

  • Spectrometers: 400 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Infrared (IR), Raman, UV/visible, laser, mass, atomic, fluorescence, circular dichroism, and polarimetry
  • Inert Atmosphere Glovebox, Schlenk Manifolds & Solvent Purification System: Allowing for the synthesis of molecules in water and/or oxygen-free environments
  • Chromatographs: Permeation and research-grade gas and liquid chromatographs
  • Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Variable Temperature Polarized Microscopy
  • Extensive Biochemistry Equipment: Including liquid chromatography (HPLC) and Stopped-Flow Circular Dichroism spectrometry.
  • Computers, 24-Core Server, & Computational Programs: Computational Modeling (Density Functional Theory), Data-gathering, Analysis, Library access to structure-searching databases (including SciFinder Scholar)
