Protasiewicz Group Research Facilities

Lab & Student Space

Our newly rennovated research labs are housed in 416 Millis Science Center (which is part of the larger newly dedicated (2001) Agnar Pytte Science Center). Our research space includes 8 six-foot wide variable flow rate hoods, most of which contain high vacuum lines for manipulation of air- and water- sensitive materials. In this lab space is a room that was designed for housing inert atmosphere dryboxes. We have two dryboxes, as described below). Our group oversees the Departmental X-ray facility housed in the newly rennovated lab in 230 Millis. All the equipment needed for modern synthesis of materials can be found in our labs.

Since the major rennovation, our lab contains separate areas (418 Millis) for students desks (above is pictured Bob and Xufang-the wall of Mountain Dew is Rhett Smith's creation). Our area in Millis also contains space for cumputers, printers, scanners, and even a conference area.
