A close-up view of one of our fume hoods.
Large windows span the length of our lab, allowing plenty of natural light. Our lab overlooks the scenic San Pasqual Path
The group has two HPLCs equipped with 5 different columns for chiral separation, complete with
autosamplers and column changers.
We also have GCs, equipped with autosamplers, which we use for
both analytical and chiral separation purposes.
We have two Teledyne ISCO Combiflash instruments for automated flash chromatography
A Prep-scale SFC instrument
The elephant-trunk ventilators are appropriate for containing minor laboratory hazards
The group has a two-section glove box for working with air or
water sensitive reagents.
Each group member is assigned a rotovap, which is regularly used for evaporating solvents.
Each rotovap is powered by a high efficiency, low maintenance PIAB air aspirator with a vacustat vacuum regulator.
Four Cryocool instruments for extended low-temperature experiments.
A GC-MS with an autosampler.
Our LC-MS (TOF), capable of obtaining high resolution mass spectra.
A Biotage Microwave, with an autosampler for up to eight reaction vials.
An SFC and UHPLC, capable of reducing analysis times up to 10 times compared to conventional HPLC.
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.
Our computer room has several Mac computers and a color laserjet.
A kitchenette for coffee, snacks, and other important group supplies.
