The UW–Madison Catalysis Center is located on the 6th floor of the Chemistry Department (Rm 6309 and 6305) and houses a wide variety of equipment and instrumentation for performing and monitoring chemical reactions at elevated pressures.
In order to use the equipment and instruments you must first be trained by a Catalysis Center PA. The contact information can be found on the right.
Please also follow these guidelines:
- Reserve time on the reservation calendar
- Log your activity
- Make sure that you are handling all equipment in a safe manner. If you are unsure, double check with a PA.
The gas cylinder of H2 can be used to fill balloons or pressure reactors.
This instrument has 8 wells that can be under different temperatures and pressures. It also has the ability for constant pressure gas up-take data to be obtained.
A VAC DRI-TRAIN glove box is housed in the catalysis center to aid in air sensitive chemistry.
