Facility title Overview
Colour science analytical A high level of expertise in a number of colour science analytical techniques.
Diamond Leeds SAXS Facility The tailored instrument for high-resolving X-ray scattering experiments offers open access to Leeds and other UK-users around the year for the nanostructural fine-analysis of complex soft matter, polymers, bio-materials and advanced solid materials.
Flow-Xl: A New UK Facility for Analysis of Crystallisation in Flow Systems Flow-Xl will enable in situ, time-resolved characterisation of crystallisation processes in highly controlled environments.
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) HPLC systems provide rapid analysis of mixtures and the production of high quality purified materials, particularly where classical separation methods are unsuccessful.
Mass spectrometry Our mass spectrometry facilities provide cutting edge, highly sensitive determination of molecular weight and analysis of mixtures.
NMR spectroscopy Solution/liquid state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy across five spectrometers operating at 7.05, 9.4, 11.75 (x2) and 14.1 T, corresponding to 1H Larmor frequencies of 300, 400, 500 and 600 MHz respectively.
Robotic liquid handling and screening Plate based screening methods enable high throughput assays to be performed. These assays are accelerated where the robotic liquid handler can be used for plate preparation.
School of Chemistry An <a href="http://eps.leeds.ac.uk/chemistry-research-innovation/doc/research-facilities-1">overview of the facilities</a> available within the School of Chemistry.
X-ray diffraction Our facility offers both single crystal and powder X-ray analysis, ranging from simple bulk powder analysis through to crystal structure solution and refinement.
