Chemical Laboratories

We have two wet chemistry laboratories, equipped with electrochemical workstations. These workstations are capable of techniques such as:

  • corrosion measurement
  • low current detection
  • electrochemical impedance spectroscopy

We have combined these with Quartz Crystal Microbalance and a liquid-liquid extraction cell.

Our other facilities include:

  • Scanning electron microscopes
  • Energy dispersive X-ray analysis
  • UV-visible spectroscopy
  • Raman spectroscopy
  • X-ray fluorescence

Materials fabrication facilities include a sputter coater for thin layer deposition and photoinduced electroless deposition rigs.

The active laboratory includes a glove box and is capable of handling open sources of ionising radiation. You can discuss further with the Departmental Radiation Officer.
