Lab Equipment

The Department has exceptional NMR and Mass Spec facilities. We also have an outstanding X-ray Crystallography facility. For more specialist services, our group collaborates with the EPSRC National Mass Spectrometry Service Centre, and Diamond Light Source. The Anderson group has strong links with the Oxford Advanced Research Computing Centre. We carry out experiments using a very wide range of physical techniques mostly in collaborations with experts in these fields. Visit our collaborators here.

Shimadzu UFLC GPC

Used for analytical and preparative recycling GPC.
Hitachi/VWR LaChrom ELITE HPLC

Equipped with a L-2130 quaternary pump, L-2455 diode array detector, L-2200 autosampler, L-2350 column oven and Foxy Jr. fraction collector, allowing analytical, semi-prep and preparative HPLC/GPC to be carried out.

We have a range of columns; normal and reverse phase, and more specialised columns which allows to separate everything from small organic molecules, our large macrocycles, to water-soluble peptides.

Agilent 1100 Series Chemstation HPLC

With a DAD, autosampler, and fraction collector.
Perkin Elmer Lambda 25 UV-Vis Spectrometer

Allows scanning between 250-1100 nm. The accompanying Peltier element allows to acquire UV-Vis spectra at a range of temperatures.
Perkin Elmer Lambda 20 UV-Vis Spectrometer

Allows scanning between 250-1100 nm. The accompanying thermostat bath allows to acquire UV-Vis spectra at a range of temperatures.
FS5 Spectrofluorometer - Edinburgh Instruments

Allows both emission and excitation spectra of our samples to be recorded. Spectral range up to 1650 nm and fluorescence lifetimes down to 400 ps.
Autolab Electrochemistry Kit

A range of modes are available including cyclic voltammetry and square wave, to allow probing of the electronic properties of our compounds.

Tissue Culture

We make extensive use of the tissue culture lab, which is a shared facility in the Chemistry Research Laboratory.
