Tyler Junior College Welcomes the

National Microscale Chemistry Center

The National Microscale Chemistry Center (NMCC) was established in January 1993 at Merrimack College to promote the use of microscale chemistry as a means of eliminating toxic waste at the source. The South Central Regional Microscale Chemistry Center, SCRMCC, was established at Tyler Junior College in 1998 through a collaborative grant with the NMCC. In cooperation with Merrimack College, the National Microscale Center was moved to Tyler Junior College in Fall 2017. Therefore the SCRMCC is changing to the NMCC.


NMCC is permanently housed at Tyler Junior College, an institution of higher learning, accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Colleges to award associates, baccalaureates, and certificates, and serving the greater East Texas region.

Its major initial focus is the offering of workshops, seminars and publications on the operation and advantages of conversion of laboratories to the microscale level.
