Facilities & Equipment

The Department of Chemistry is housed in the Chemistry, Astronomy and Physics building, better known as the CAP building.  It's one of the newer buildings on the Appalachian State campus and is also home to the Physics and Astronomy Department and the Computer Science Department.

Laboratories in the A.R. Smith Department of Chemistry are equipped with modern instrumentation which is used regularly by faculty and students. We also provide services to research and industry partners.
