The need of "custom made" material is common in the nanotechnology science
and in many cases a major part of the research.
The organic synthetic labs were established as a part of the IKI center
in order to provide its members the accessibility to designed organic material.
The synthetic lab possesses two fields of activities
(i) Synthesis of "custom made" organic materials
and (ii) "Living" polymerization.
(i) Organic Synthesis lab: Design and synthesis of requested organic material
according to literature as well as newly developed materials.
(ii) Polymerization lab: Synthesis of well define polymers (homopolymers and block copolymers)
based on "living" polymerization techniques (anionic and radical).
Modes of activities:
There are several available modes of collaborations between the lab and the IKI research groups
(i) Design and synthesis: The design and rationalization of the target materials
is performed in collaboration with the researcher, synthesis is performed completely by the synthetic lab.
(ii) Assistance and facilities: The lab offers assistance for members that perform their own synthesis.
Students can get guidance and support when needed.
(iii) Consultancy: We are here to help in any question you have that related to organic synthesis
