Fluorine Group equipment & facilities

All the researchers have their own research laboratories suitably equipped for their areas of expertise. More specialist facilities include:

Fluorine Generators
All-metal Vacuum/pressure lines for handling highly aggresive materials
HF-handling expertise
Low-temperature reactors
Absorption/desorption methods
gas-phase reactors
mass spectrometry
NMR facilities
solid-phase synthesis

In addition the School of Chemistry has very well equiped analytical facilities. These include Bruker and Varian NMR spectrometers at 200, 300, 400 and 500 MHz, and access to those at even higher field strength; in-house elemental analyisis facilities; extensive X-ray (single crystal and XRD) facilities; the Michael Barber Centre for Mass Spectrometry; FT-IR and Raman (Nicolet) spectrometers; thermogravimetric analysis; surface analysis; GLC and HPLC laboratory.

HFCs in Fluorine Chemistry
Alan Brisdon's Fluorine Chemistry group have pioneered the chemistry of HFCs (CFC replacements) for generating trifluorovinyl and trifluoropropynyl reagents.
