This glovebox is used to carry out air-sensitive chemistry under an inert atmosphere
This glovebox is equipped with two catalyst beds to constantly provide a water and oxygen free atmosphere with <1 ppm water and oxygen for handling air-sensitive chemicals. The glovebox is equipped with a high capacity charcoal purifier to constantly remove solvent vapours from the atmosphere. The glovebox is also equipped with a cold port to carry out reactions at low temperatures and a freezer to store chemicals at -30 oC.
This lab carries out research in synthetic inorganic chemistry with the goal of designing next generation catalysts and materials.
A diverse range of air-sensitive chemistry is carried out under inert atmosphers conditions in gloveboxes or using Schlenk and high-vacuum lines in fumehoods. We also carry out photochemical experiments using light of different wavelengths.
We work with a range of heavy metals such as tin, bismuth, antimony, selenium, lead, indium, and gallium.
