Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)A purpose built unit, it houses magnet room, technical support office, data processing laboratory and sample preparation and handling laboratory.
The Mass Spectrometry facility provides analysis of novel synthesised compounds, large and small molecules covering a mass range of 50- 150,000Da, depending on the instrument employed.
X-Ray CrystallographyThere are both single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction (SXD and PXRD) facilities available in the Department. Though these normally run samples for Strathclyde based academics, they are also available for commercial hire.
This instrument brings us the capability to synthesise peptide and small protein derivatives up to 100 amino acid residues in length. Fast and efficient coupling protocols, together with on-line monitoring and feedback enables the rapid synthesis of complex peptides in a fully automated fashion.
