The Rivard group lab in CCIS at the University of Alberta

Available Equipment

Our lab is fully equipped for air or moisture sensitive synthesis. Every fumehood has a vacuum/nitrogen manifold and we also have a single and a double glove box for work under inert atmosphere, in addition to a solvent system to keep solvents dry (see photos below). To support our work with polymers, we have a GPC equipped with an auto-sampler and a multi-detector system (RI, LS and viscometer).

The University of Alberta also has great facilities and staff, giving us access to 8 NMR spectrometers, analytical instrumentation (EA, thermal analysis, UV-Vis, fluorescence, etc.) and crystallographic support. Click on the following links for more information:
