The Department's research, teaching and support functions are spread over five buildings:  Space Science and Technology, Dell Butcher Hall, George R. Brown Hall, MD Anderson Biological Laboratories and the BioScience Research Collaborative.  


Department of Chemistry Facilites_Space Science  

The Chemistry Departmental Office is located on the second floor, Room 201, in the Space Science and Technology Building located off of Entrance 20.  Several research labs are located in this building, including the offices and laboratories of the Smalley-Curl Institute.  In the basement of Space Science is the Research Support Shop which is a custom fabrication machine shop available to our faculty. 



Department of Chemistry Facilities_Dell Butcher Hall 

Adjacent to the Space Science building is Dell Butcher Hall, which has additional research laboratories and most of the Department's teaching laboratories. Much of the University's research in nanoscale science and technology is conducted in this building.                       



Department of Chemistry Facilities_George R Brown Hall 

Nearby is George R. Brown Hall, which houses modern laboratories for organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical research. The organic chemists occupy several thousand sq. ft. of laboratory space on the second and third floors of the east wing of the building.   



Department of Chemistry Facilities_MD Anderson Biological Labs 

The third floor of the west end of the MD Anderson Biological Laboratories building houses many of our theoretical chemists.  




Department of Chemistry Facilities_BRC BuildingLocated at 6500 Main Street the BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC) is equipped for cutting-edge laboratory, theoretical and computational investigations, and features eight floors of research labs, classrooms and auditoriums. It meets the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.
