Bagley Lab


State-Of-The-Art Laboratories for Synthetic Organic Chemistry

Our newly refurbished technology laboratories host excellent facilities for the EU funded LabFact programme, with state-of-the-art equipment for flow chemistry and mechanochemistry.

Our recently refurbished synthetic laboratories are outfitted for modern synthetic organic chemistry and drug discovery, with a dedicated suite of automated CEM and Biotage microwave synthesizers, Biotage Isolera column purification systems, mass-directed LC purification, bespoke microwave flow reactor technology and automated Liberty BlueTM microwave peptide synthesizer. Analytical facilities support our synthetic work, with three high-field NMR spectrometers, two liquid state spectrometers (400 and 500 MHz) and a 600 MHz spectrometer for more detailed analyses, as well as a dedicated team of support staff, nine state-of-the-art, analytical mass spectrometers including triple quadrupoles, ion trap, double focusing systems , high resolution Fourier transformer, inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer and a TOF unit allowing analysis of small and large molecules. We gratefully acknowledge the ongoing support of the R M Phillips Trust for outfitting our synthetic laboratories so that our research teams enjoy a wonderful research environment and to the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for funding LabFact under the lnterreg V Programme.
