Research Facilities

Good research requires access to good research facilities and libraries. OSU's library system is ranked 5th nationally among US public university library systems.  Battelle Memorial Institute and of Chemical Abstracts libraries, both adjacent to the campus, are easily available to OSU faculty and graduate students. The pooled resources of these libraries provide a collection of technical literature matched by few others in the world. Ohio State is a comprehensive research organism with 14 different colleges offering a network of intra-research collaboration.   

The University research computer center provides a wide variety of services, ranging from a high-speed data link to a Cray supercomputer located on the edge of the campus, to over a dozen microcomputer laboratories around campus.  The Campus Chemical Instrument Center has three high-resolution gas chromatograph/mass spectrometers as well as 300 and 500 MHz FT-NMR spectrometers equipped for two-dimensional and solids experiments.  For research at the cellular level there are facilities for scanning electron microscopy, microcalorimetry, and for making and using microelectrodes capable of electrical and chemical measurements within a single cell.
