These laboratories have world class work benches and fume cupboards. Fume cupboards are equipped with vacuum as well as inert gas facilities.
All operations required in synthetic experiments can be carried out. These include reactions at both low and high temperatures, reactions in inert gas atmosphere, low pressure distillations etc.
These laboratories are also useful in carrying out chromatographic experiments for the separation of compounds. They are equipped to synthesize functional materials (organic and inorganic) at different length scales (includes nanometer to micrometer sized crystallites) using a variety of synthetic routes.
