Forms

Administration

Chemical Services Authorization Form.  If you are a reasearcher at ISU, this form must be completed before we will accept samples from you, train you to use an instrument, or authorize after-hours entry to our facility labs.  The form must be printed out, because it requires traditional style signatures.  The signed form should be returned to Ms. Carlene Auestad, 1605 Gilman.  She will type the information into a cyber-database; once we see that you are in the database, we can begin to work with you.

Chemical Services Authorization Form - External.  If you are not an ISU researcher, the external version of the Authorization form must be completed before we will accept samples from you. The form must be printed out, because it requires traditional style signatures. Instructions are on the form.

 

 X-ray/Radiation Producing Device Worker Application form. This form is required to use CIF X-Ray facility and to be authorized work in 1707 Gilman Hall even if you are not using X-Ray instruments.  Fill only the yellow marked fields, print the form and bring/send  it to Dr. Arkady Ellern, 1711 Gilman Hall.

Access Request Form.  Most of our labs are open during the day; the exceptions are 1702 Gilman, and 1709 Gilman.  To access these labs or for after-hours access to the other labs, we must program the door locks to accept the magic code embedded in your ISU One ID card, or other ISU-issued "prox card".  Card reading normally occurs on Thursday morning, and the locks are reprogramed on Thursday afternoon.  This form can be submitted on-line.

CIF Checkout Form.  When you are preparing to leave ISU, you will be required to fill out a Graduate Student Checkout form, which you should obtain from your departmental office.  The Chemistry Graduate Student Checkout form contains a signature space for Steve Veysey, the manager of Instrument Services.  Steve will not sign unless you have completed the CIF Checkout form.  This gives us the information we need to remove access privleges to labs and to instruments.

Instrumentation

NMR Spectrometer Account Request Form.  Many of you will be running your own samples on one of our NMRs.  We must create accounts for you on each NMR you intend to use, and also set up directories for your datafiles.  This needs to happen before we can train you, so to avoid delays submit this form several days in advance of your first NMR training session.

Elemental Analysis (Single).  Almost all elemental analysis measurements are done by staff.  If you have several unrelated samples, you should  fill out one of these forms for each sample.  Fill out the header information.  Do not fill out the results section.

Elemental Analysis (Multiple).  If you have many similar samples, you may choose to submit just one form.  Fill out the header information.  Do not fill out the results section.

Mass Spectrometry Sample Submission.  We encourage you to receive training and run your own samples. Under some circumstances we allow you to submit samples for analysis by staff.  This is discussed on the Mass Spectrometry page.  We are developing new procedures for sample submission, but for the moment, please use this form.

X-Ray Single Crystal Analysis, Submission form.  All Single Crystal X-Ray Determinations are done by staff. Please, fill the form and e-mail it to ellern@iastate.edu BEFORE bringing the sample. MS EXCEL format Submission Form has instructions in "HowToFill" tab.
