Natural Product Synthesis and Synthetic Methodology

California Institute of Technology • Pasadena, California


Schlinger
Our home as of April 2010, The Warren and Katherine Schlinger Laboratory for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.

Entrance
The west entrance to the Schlinger Laboratory.



Hallway
The hallway outside our lab and offices.

Bay
A look down into a lab bay.



Fumehoods
A close-up view of one of our fume hoods.

glovebox
Large windows span the length of our lab, allowing plenty of natural light. Our lab overlooks the scenic San Pasqual Path



hplc
The group has two HPLCs equipped with 5 different columns for chiral separation, complete with autosamplers and column changers.

gc
We also have GCs, equipped with autosamplers, which we use for both analytical and chiral separation purposes.



ISCO
We have two Teledyne ISCO Combiflash instruments for automated flash chromatography

Prep SFC
A Prep-scale SFC instrument



Ventilator
The elephant-trunk ventilators are appropriate for containing minor laboratory hazards

glovebox
The group has a two-section glove box for working with air or water sensitive reagents.



Rotovaps
Each group member is assigned a rotovap, which is regularly used for evaporating solvents.

PIAB
Each rotovap is powered by a high efficiency, low maintenance PIAB air aspirator with a vacustat vacuum regulator.



Cryocools
Four Cryocool instruments for extended low-temperature experiments.

GCMS
A GC-MS with an autosampler.



LC-TOF
Our LC-MS (TOF), capable of obtaining high resolution mass spectra.

Microwave
A Biotage Microwave, with an autosampler for up to eight reaction vials.



JASCO
An SFC and UHPLC, capable of reducing analysis times up to 10 times compared to conventional HPLC.

nmr
Our lab is adjacent to the Caltech Center for Catalysis and Chemical Synthesis, which features two Symyx Core Modules used by the department for high throughput reaction condition screening.



Computer Room
Our computer room has several Mac computers and a color laserjet.

nmr
A kitchenette for coffee, snacks, and other important group supplies.
