Our Facilities

The department of inorganic chemistry at the University of Würzburg and our group laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for experimental research and analysis of new compounds. These include six NMR spectrometers, four X-ray diffractometers, one EPR spectrometer, one Linux cluster (400+ cores), as well as microwave, LC, GPC, and GC/MS systems. A potentiostat (electrochemistry), and IR/UV-visible spectrometers are directly connected to one of our glove box systems to facilitate the characterization of sensitive materials. Details on the available equipment are shown below (click on images to enlarge).
