Among the research facilities at the Department of Science and Environment is a modern laboratory building from 2014 equipped to the research in biology and chemistry.
The building contains among other things two confocal microscopes, which researchers from outside the university can use. Read more about the possibilities at microscope-core.ruc.dk.
Based in a new building equipped with modern infra-structure, chemistry researchers in the DSC work with state-of-the-art instrumentation and analytical facilities, such as:
Associate Prof. Torben Lund (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Assistant Prof. Biljana Mojsoska (email@example.com)
Operator: Jacob Krake, MSc. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
LC-MS: LTQ-XL Thermo Finnigan linear ion-trap mass spectrometer with a HESII electro spray ion source, coupled to a Dionex Ultimate 3000 UHPLC and a diode array detector.
Instrument use: Analysis of ruthenium dyes, natural products, intact proteins, peptides, organic reaction mixtures.
LTQ-Orbitrap Velos high resolution mass spectrometer coupled to a Dionex Ultimate 3000 nano-HPLC.
Instrument use: Proteomics and exact mass determinations.
GC-MS: Thermo Scientific Trace 1300 GC coupled to a ISQ-7000 EI-MS and a TDC detector. The instrument includes a Triplus RSH autosampler with PTV and head-space injection.
Instrument use: PCB and gas-molecule detection (H2, CO, CO2…).
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectrometer
Associate Prof. William Goldring (email@example.com)
Operator: Annette Christensen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Bruker Ascend 400 MHz, including auto-sampler and BCU II variable temperature control
Instrument use: Analysis of synthesis and natural products, biological material, and molecular complexes. Methods include, structure characterization and elucidation using a variety of routine and non-routine one- and two-dimensional experiments.
Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS)
Associate Prof. Søren Hvidt (email@example.com)
Malvern Zetasizer Nano-S
Instrument use: Analysis of nanoparticles, including materials and biological complexes, for particle size measurement and polydispersity determination.
The section is also equipped with a number of other instruments, such as infrared and UV spectrometers, preparative and analytical chromatographic equipment (HPLC, radial LC, size exclusion), rheometers (Bohlin VOR and Haake RS100), calorimeters (ITC and DSC), photochemical lamps (400 and 125 W medium pressure Hg) and reaction vessels, and chemical computation facilities (Gaussian and Macromodel).
