UV/Vis Spectroscopy

UV-Vis spectrometer

The Analytical Lab houses a Perkin-Elmer Lambda 19DM UV/Vis spectrometer using UV WinLab software.

The instrument is a double-beam, double-monochromator, ratio-recording spectrometer operating in the ultraviolet and visible spectral ranges (total usable wavelength range: 175 - 900 nm).

The sample cells can be thermostated between 15 and 35 oC and the sample chamber can be purged with an inert gas.
