The polarimeter is an instrument that determines the value of the deviation of polarized light by an optically active stereoisomer. This variation can easily be related to the concentration of a substance, so this apparatus can be calibrated and used to determine the concentration of optically active substances in a sample of unknown composition.
There are two dry boxes (like the one shown in the picture) in our laboratories, inside which the amounts of oxygen and humidity are almost non-existent. Therefore we can store compounds sensitive to air and water, as well as work with them without decomposition problems
Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC)
Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) is a technique that measures the heat discharged or consumed in a reaction. It is used to determine thermodynamic parameters in supramolecular interactions.
The XPR2 microbalance has a weighing range from 2.1g to 1μg with a precision of 1ug.
The Luzchem LZC-ORG is a photoreactor designed for organic photochemistry and liquid samples equipped with 5 switchable lamps on each side (UV-A and/or UV-C). This equipment has a recessed magnetic stirrer and a digital timer built in.
