Two other similar laboratories for organic synthesis (Nr. 63 and 64) are under construction at “Raluca Ripan” Institute for Research in Chemistry. Main equipments:

  • UV-Vis spectrometer (Cecil)
  • Fluorescence Spectrometer equipped with integrating sphere (Perkin Elmer)
  • Cyclic Voltammetry Potentiometer (BioLogic)
  • Semi-preparative HPLC system (Dionex<)/li>
  • Freeze Drying System (CHRIST)
  • Polarimeter (Jasco)
  • Karl Fischer Titrator (TitraLine)
  • Solid Phase Peptide Synthesizer (Stuart)
  • Centrifuge (Hettich)

Prof. Ion Grosu is responsible of the Mass Spectrometry laboratory equipped with an Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap XL and an Agilent 6320 LC-MS systems, working in ESI, APCI and MALDI ionisation modes.
