The Braunschweig group operates in two adjoined buildings, the Institute for Inorganic Chemistry and the Institute for Sustainable Chemistry and Catalysis with Boron, which together provide generous laboratory (40+ lab working places) and office space for top-level chemical research. Our laboratories and the two institutes that house them are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for experimental research involving the handling, manipulation and analysis of sensitive materials under inert conditions. These include six NMR spectrometers, four X-ray diffractometers, one EPR spectrometer, one Linux cluster (1000+ cores), as well as microwave, LC, GPC, and GC/MS systems. A potentiostat (electrochemistry), and IR/UV-vis spectrometers are directly connected to one of our glove box systems to facilitate the characterization of highly sensitive materials. Details on the available equipment are provided below (click on images to enlarge).
In total, six NMR spectrometers are available in our institute including...
...a Bruker Avance Neo I 600 (4 channels; different triple resonance probe heads)
...a Bruker Avance Neo I 500 with N2-CryoPlatform
