The Organic Synthesis Facility is equipped to synthesize liquid crystalline materials that are not commercially available. The facility synthesizes materials that have been previously reported in the literature, purifies impure single liquid crystals, and formulates mixtures when an exact composition is provided. The facility has the capabilities to perform multi-step organic synthesis, chromatographic separations and chemical purification.
