Research Facilities

at the

Department of Chemistry


The Department of Chemistry at the University of Malta has some cutting-edge instrumentation, that provide excellent facilities to our staff and students in research.  

If you require characterisation and analysis to be performed or are interested in collaborative research please find out more information by contacting Malta University Laboratory Services

Key Facilities

  • NMR 500 MHz (multinuclear facility)
  • High Resolution Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (both graphite furnace and flame)
  • UPLC-MSMS
  • X-Ray Fluorescence (energy dispersive)
  • Dynamic Light scattering with electrophoretic facility

These key facilities were purchased through European Region development funds though the grants ERDF 018 and ERDF 309.
