Synthesis Laboratory

The Hill Hall 323 Synthesis Lab has eight fume hoods, two glove boxes, a dynamic vapor sorption measurement system, and a variety of more general laboratory equipment. It is primarily used for ion transport membrane material synthesis and functionalization of silicon nanocrystals.


  1. Glove Box

    The Synthesis Lab has a glove box system manufactured by LC Technologies. It consists of two glove boxes, one with 4 gloves and one with 2 gloves. The 4-glove box is used for wet anhydrous chemistry, and is equipped with a spin coater and freezer. The 2-glove box is used for measurements. The atmosphere in both boxes is nitrogen that is kept free of oxygen, water, and solvents by a common purification system.
