Centre for Chemical Analysis, Research and Training (C-CART)
C-CART provides research support, training and chemical analysis services, to undergraduate and graduate students, university researchers, government agencies and private sector R&D companies. The instruments associated with C-CART are grouped into four service areas: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), X-Ray Crystallography (XRD), Mass Spectrometry (MS) and Materials Characterization (MC).
Solution-, solid-state and micro-imaging facility. We provide training for users as well as technical support. Samples can also be submitted to our staff by infrequent internal or external users
Single crystal small molecule X-ray crystallography facility. Samples are submitted to our staff crystallographer. Data collection, structure solution, refinement and access to the Cambridge Structural Database are available.
The Mass Spectrometry facility houses many instruments designed to provide users with a choice of options to accommodate a broad range of analytical requirements. Training is provided on all instruments and assistance in method development is provided upon request.
The Materials Characterization facility comprises a suite of instruments that can analyze composite, biological and polymeric materials, in addition to pure compounds.
