Equipment and Experimental Techniques

Several mass spectrometers are available for experimental studies:

  1. VG ZAB-HF-2F/AMD 604 Four-Sector Mass Spectrometer

  2. Spectrospin CMS 47X Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FTICR) Spectrometer

  3. Micromass Bio-Q

  4. Waters Synapt-G2 HDMS

Isotope labeling techniques often are indispensable in order to elucidate regio- and stereoselectivities in gas phase reactions unambiguously. The group shares a fully equipped organic laboratory and has a broad stock of 2H, 13C, 18O and 15N-labeled compounds.

For calculations and other purposes, the group possesses several PC's and has access to supercomputers at computer centers in Berlin and elsewhere.
