Lab Tour

We are located on the second floor of the Chemistry Building on the University of Washington campus. Our laboratory space contains the necessities for synthetic chemistry and polymer characterization. We have eight 6′ fume hoods across 211 – 217 CHB, as well as a 6′ walk-in hood for purification instrumentation. Our fume hoods are equipped with stir plates and custom Schlenk lines, and we have a single station glovebox for air- & moisture-free manipulations. We also have access to the UW NMR and Mass Spectrometry facilities, as well as the Molecular Analysis Facility (MAF) in the Molecular Science & Engineering (MolES) Institute.
