Dr. Nelson Zhao
Welcome to the Analytical Services for the UNF Department of Chemistry
The Analytical Instrumentation Facility houses a number of advanced analytical instruments which can be used to analyze numerous samples for you. Our instruments include NMR, FTIR(Solid and Liquid), UV-Vis, AA, GC, GC/MS, and XRD.Our services are available at reasonable prices. Whether it is a simple sample analysis, method development, or a more complicated structural elucidation, quality work is provided in a timely fashion.Click the instrument below for rate information. The charges are on a per sample or per hour basis depending on the instrument involved.
For special requests such as NMR data interpretations, analyses requiring the use of several instruments, complex mixture analysis, etc., please contact Nelson Zhao at (904) 620-1962 or by email at
The NMR lab is equipped with a Agilent VNMRS 500 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance instrument.
Both probes have VT capability between -80°C and +120°C. In addition to 1D 1H, 19F, 13C, 31P, 29Si NMR experiments, the instrument can acquire APT, DEPT, and 2D experiments such as COSY, TOCSY, NOESY, HSQC, and HMBC.

Perkin-Elmer Lambda 35 UV-Visible spectrophotometer can be used to perform quantitation, spectral scans, and kinetic analysis in the ultraviolet (UV) to visible wavelength range (190 - 850 nm).
*minimum charge is 1 hour
The department is equipped with a Perkin Elmer AAnalyst 800 instrument for metals analysis. There are many Hollow Cathode Lamps (HCL) and Electrodeless Discharge Lamps (EDL) ready for metal ion analyses. They include Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Aluminum, Chromium, Zinc, Lead, Antimony, Cadmium, Selenium, Tin, and Arsenic. Please call Nelson Zhao at (904)620-1962 or by email at
for other metal analyses.
