The Department of Chemistry has a wealth of NMR, IR, UV and MS facilities, the more pertinent are reviewed below:
Chemistry: Mass Spectrometry Facilities:
This is a critical piece of instrumentation for our research group. The mass resolution enables not only molecular weight determination, (Mn, Mw and PDI), but also detailed characterization that enables the monitoring of end group modifications and repeat unit functionalization.
Size Exclusion/Gel Permeation Chromatography:
Tulane Center for Polymer Reaction Monitoring and Characterization: PolyRMC
Director Prof. Wayne Reed: Department of Physics
PolyRMC offers state-of-the-art, real-time analysis of polymer reaction using “ACOMP” to enable fundamental understanding and control of polymerization reactions.
