Soft Matter Synthesis Laboratory

Our synthetic labs are equipped to perform a wide range of reactions with solid, liquid and gaseous reagents, with control of pressure and temperature, in air or other atmospheres. Chemicals sensitive to air and moisture are handled in a glove-box or using Schlenk techniques. Steel and glass autoclaves allow synthesis with gaseous reagents with pressures up to 12 bars.

Facilities include:

  • Schlenk lines
  • Glove box
  • Autoclaves
  • Rotavapor
  • Hot plates with magnetic stirrer
