Jacobs-Keck Renovation Naming Opportunities

Underway in summer 2017, this phase involves renovation of the three chemistry instructional laboratories—the General Chemistry Laboratory, the Physical Chemistry Laboratory and the Advanced Chemical Laboratory (SuperLab). In addition the these naming opportunities, you can also “Claim an Element“.

General Chemistry Laboratory

Naming Level: $500K

The General Chemistry Laboratory will be overhauled to make room for the growing inventory of instruments that have been acquired over the years.
