Arduengo Laboratory Space
and Capabilities at Georgia Tech

 The Arduengo group at Georgia Tech is bilingual (English-German) and welcomes a diversity of scientific and cultural experieces.  The group's workspace occupies modern research facilities in Georgia Tech's Molecular Science ad Engineering Laboratory (MoSE) on the Georgia Tech Campus in Atlanta. The design of the Arduengo lab space at Tech is a mix of industrial and academic laboratory styles; the aim of which is to capture an industrial-style research output coupled with a framework for education and academic discovery. The group utilizes 55 m2 of lab space and 22 m2 of office space devoted to synthetic chemistry. A typical lab workstation is outfitted with standard synthetic equipment, such as glassware, Schlenk lines, rotary evaporators, balances and chromatographic equipment. The Arduengo laboratory space also offers 4 single-worker (1.5 m) hoods, two moisture- and oxygen-free single station glove boxes with freezers, 1 double station glove box, and 12 linear meters of bench top space. Synthetic procedures can be conducted from milligram up to 12 liter (multiple Kg) scales . Equipment is also available for gas manipulations and reactions, and a variety of photochemical equipment supports synthetic and physical photochemistry. The laboratory is also equipped with gas metering stations that are plumbed throughout the space.  These stations are capable of delivering gases in milligram to kilogram quantities and meter by either weight or volume, or both. This capability is rare in an academic synthetic setting.  Training on and access to these facilities is highly sought by many of our colaborators.

Collaborations with other research groups at Georgia Tech enable the application of the Arduengo group's chemistry with unusual valency to problems such as pharmaceutical synthesis, photovoltaics, nonlinear optical materials, sustainable chemistry, and catalysis.

 Georgia Tech's School of Chemistry and Biochemistry has access to a machine shop, a glassblower and glassblowing shop, and an electronics repair and design facility. A full suite of structural characterization instrumentation is available for group projects. The NMR center provides campus researchers with access to solution NMR instruments at field strengths up to 800 MHz, solid-state NMR capabilities at up to 700 MHz, and an imaging capability for small specimens. MRI capabilities for larger specimens, including people, are available elsewhere on campus. enter for Computational Molecular Science and Technology (CCMST) provides computer resources for collaborative and individual  projects involving experimentalists and theoreticians in our school and elsewhere on campus. It also hosts computational chemistry classes and workshops. The Georgia Institute of Technology’s Systems Mass Spectrometry Core Facility provides tailored proteomic, metabolomic, and analytical chemistry support to researchers across campus as well as to other academic and industrial institutions both state- and nationwide.  The core facilities are located in the basement of the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences (IBB) and the basement of the Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB).
