Materials Chemistry Laboratory

 

The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan sponsored the “Strengthening of Materials Chemistry” project and granted Rs. 38.5 millions in 2006. It resulted in the establishment of the Materials Chemistry Laboratory at the Department. Under the set-up of this project, the following facilities are currently available to the students and research scholars of GCU. Other R & D institutions and industries engaged in the development of new synthetic materials are offered these services on commercial basis as per University policy.

 

Single Crystal X-Ray Diffractometer

 

Single Crystal X-ray Diffractometer KAPPA APEX II is the top of the line solution for structure determination of organic, organo-metallic and inorganic compounds. The instrument is equipped with 4-circle kappa goniometer with the very sensitive and fast CCD detector with 700 series Oxford Cryostream unit, which allows fast cooling to 100 K in just 20 minutes by a cold stream of Nitrogen gas. The 60 L dewar can supply cold Nitrogen gas for 4-5 days without refilling. Besides, it can be refilled with liquid Nitrogen without affecting the crystal temperature.

 

Various research groups working in the Department of Chemistry in the area of organic synthesis, co-ordination Chemistry, natural product isolation & characterization are actively using this facility.

 

CHNS Elemental Analyzer

 

The Vario Micro Cube Elemental Analyzer is being used for rapid determination of the Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Sulphur contents in organic and other type of materials. It has the capability of handling a wide variety of sample types; such as, solids, liquids, volatile and viscous samples in the field of pharmaceuticals, polymers, chemicals and energy. Based on the classical Pregl-Dumas method, samples are combusted in a pure Oxygen environment, with the resultant combustion gases measured in an automated fashion.

 

This instrument also incorporates a newly developed gas separation method, which utilizes time proven solutions. It adds an instrument with special performance for small and very small sample amounts of 1-10 mg or less. 

 

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer 

                                                                                                                                                 

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer Shimadzu 7000 F has recently been procured by the Department of Chemistry. AAS is used to estimate exact amount of metal particles both major (e.g. Na, K, Ca, Mg) and trace elements (e.g. Pb, Cu, Cd, Cr etc) up to ppm (parts per million) level in food, pharmaceutical, water or any other types of samples. This instrument is equipped with Autosampler and HVG (Hydride Vapor Generator) that will help in estimating toxic elements like As, Hg, Sb up to ppb (parts per billion) level. 

 

UV/Vis Spectrophotometers                                                                                                                      

 

The electronic spectra of the synthesized compounds or complexes can be obtained in the solutions using UV-Visible Spectrophotometer (Shimadzu, UV-1700 with UV PC software). This system is also being used for performing Spectro-photometric titrations, measurement of stability constant and optimization of reaction conditions for the preparation of metal complex ions with organic ligands. Using this system, the Department has also established the facility for the measurement of oxidative stress and anti-oxidant activity of biological and abiological samples through ABTS, FRAP, DPPH methods.

 

 

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer

 

The Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer QP-2010 is being used for the analysis of volatile constituents in the samples of natural or synthetic origin. GC-MS has extensive application in forensic and pharmaceutical analysis of drugs. Various research groups in the Department working in the areas of natural products, organo-pharmaceutical synthesis, pharmaceutical analysis, pesticides process design and production are actively using this facility.

 

 

HPLC LC-20T (with Diode Array Detector)

 

 

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (LC 20 AT-SHIMADZU) is being used for separation and qualitative / quantitative estimation of active and inactive ingredients in pharmaceutical drugs, micro-nutrients in food and pollutants in environmental samples.

 

Environmental analysis includes the study of pesticides, aflatoxins and their degradation products, whereas pharmaceutical analysis includes development of novel analytical methods for analysis of antiglaucoma, antilipidemic, antibiotic and antihypertensive drugs in pure state, pharmaceutical products and in human plasma.
