The Walton Group laboratories in Bunger-Henry are well-euipped for conducting organic, inorganic, and solid state chemistry. Facilities available for synthesizing metal-organic frameworks, metal oxides, and a variety of porous materials include synthesis ovens, vacuum ovens, Soxhlet extractors, and teflon lined reactors. The labs are equipped with typical characterization tools including BET measurement and thermal gravimetric analyzer. Specialized adsorption equipment for measuring pure-component and multi-component systems (including water) are also part of the group instrumentation.

Single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies are carried out at Emory University's X-ray Crystallographic Center.
PANalytical X-ray diffractometer and reflectometer is available in the Nair Group
for powder X-ray studies. For crystallographic work, a group license is available for Crystalmaker and site license for the Cambridge Structural Database.
High performance computing platforms are available in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering for performing molecular modeling studies. The Walton Group also has access to the cluster "Beocat
" located at Kansas State University. Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations are carried out using the Snurr Group's MUSIC simulation code
. For crystallographic work, a group license is available for Crystalmaker and site license for the Cambridge Structural Database.
