Our favorite lab equipment —mostly practical, some just quirky and fun!


The Teledyne Combiflash Rf

Our day-to-day method for the purification of reaction products







The OptiMelt automated melting point instrument

This wonderful little system records a video of the sample melting, so we can be elsewhere while determining melting points.







The Nicolet iS5 FTIR with ATR sampling accessory

The ATR (or attenuated total reflectance) allows us to acquire IR spectra from neat samples —both solid and oil. Goodbye salt plates!







The Rudolph Autopol IV polarimeter

A must have for characterizing enantiopure compounds.
