Our labs are equipped with a variety of instruments for the synthesis and analysis of inorganic and organic compounds as well as (polymeric) materials. In particular, we routinely use HPLC and MS instruments to characterize individual compounds and complex chemical mixtures. Our group also benefits from automated flash column chromatography systems as well as synthetic devices (microwave, electrochemistry).
