Scientific Equipment

As all our projects are strongly synthesis driven, the core of our facilities is a fully equipped synthetic laboratory offering space for eight chemists.

In addition, we own a number of scientific instruments.

For Synthesis

● Hot plates fully equiped with DrySyn Heating Blocks

● Four rotary evaporator with membrane pumps

● High pressure hydrogen reactor

● Syringue pump

● UV reactor

● JACOMEX Glove box

For purification

Glass Oven B-585 Kugelrohr

● Sublimation apparatus

● Train sublimation system

● Three zone tube furnace with independent temperature control from Severn thermal solutions

● Turbo pumping Station Edwards T-Station 75W

● Zone refiner for the purification of organic semiconductors

For Analysis

  • Agilent gel permeation chromatography (GPC) set-up
  • Agilent analytical and preparative HPLC set-up Dedicated room     with efficient local exhaust ventilation provides clean and safe conditions for chromatography experiments.

  • Netzsch POLYMA differential scanning calorimeter (DSC)

  • Thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA)

  • High-End optical microscope with hot stage and digital camera

  • UV-visible absorption spectrometer
  • Emission spectrometer
  • Mettler FP800 Thermosystem with FP82 hot stage for thermomicroscopy
  • Spin-Coater
  • X-ray diffractometers

And in direct access @ University of Brussels…

● NMR spectrometers from CIREM

● Mass-spectroscopy

● Infra-red spectrometers

● Cyclic voltammetry equipment
