Multi-User Analytics Center
The Analytical Center of the PPGQ, located in rooms 38A and 38B of the Department of Chemistry concentrates numerous multi-user equipment that were acquired with funds from financial agencies (FAPERJ, CNPQ, CAPES, FINEP, etc.). Currently this space has: NMR of 400 and 500MHz Bruker, FTIR-Vertex 70 Bruker equipped with ATR support, FT Raman Bruker, Gas chromatograph coupled to mass spectrometry (Shimadzu) and CG-FID 5890, Series II (Agilent), HPLC- DAD (Prominence-Shimadzu), LCMS, Circular Dichroism Spectropolarimeter J-818 (Jasco), Digital Polarimeter P-2000 (Jasco), Freeze Dryer (Liotop) and Chamelon Plate Reader (Hydex), ChemDoc Image Scanner (Bio-Rad ) and the FLASH Isolera Four Chromatography System (Biotage). Part of this equipment (NMR, CGMS, CG-FID) is maintained by UPS (UPS), which works as a secondary power supply system and which kills the operation of the equipment when there is an interruption in the primary power supply. In addition to the UPS, there is a 55KVa generator to supply electricity in an emergency regime when there is a power outage. The multi-user equipment allocated at the Central Analítica has provided analytical support for the development of students’ theses and dissertations, has allowed the execution of an articulated set of lines of research from the different stricto sensu Graduate Programs at UFRRJ, as well as helping the research activities of other institutions.
