Flow Chemistry Instrumentation at University of Graz

The Kappe Laboratories currently occupy ca. 200 m2 of well-equipped laboratory space at the Institute of Chemistry (IfC) at the University of Graz, sufficient to accommodate 15 researchers to have bench and office space. Fully renovated and dedicated laboratory space for 20 researchers will be available by March of 2018. The group is well-equipped with all standard analytical instrumentation for performing modern organic synthesis (HPLC-UV(DAD), LC-MS(ESI), GC-FID, GC-MS(EI), semi-preparative HPLC-UV, automated flash chromatography, etc.) and has access to a range of departmental equipment including a variety of high-field NMR instruments (700, 500 and 360 MHz) in addition to IR, UV, various high resolution mass spectrometers (e.g., Q-TOF LC-MS), and analytical instrumentation (ICP-MS).

We are able to work with controlled substances  and have access to dedicated laboratories designed to allow handling of highly potent substances (Occupational Exposure Banding Level 4).
