Part of the Natrajan group work on air sensitive actinide chemistry. This 'active' research takes place in the CRR facilities at the University of Manchester, which contains fumehoods, Schlenk lines and gloveboxes required for this work. In addition, there are UV-Vis, IR, Raman and NMR facilities.
The rest of the Natrajan group work on the 5th floor of the school of Chemistry. In addition to the synthesis lab there is also a small instrument lab which contains a F900 Edinburgh Instruments fluorimeter and fluoresence/ optical microscope for luminescence studies.
The group also works at the PSI where they have access to a Ti:sapphire laser that enables them to perform two photon and upconversion experiments.
