This gallery contains photos of equipment used in the Dehnen group.

Most compounds handled and synthesized in the Dehnen group are sensitive to oxygen and water. Partly, they already dissolve when exposed to light. For handling and characterization of the chemical and physical properties of the synthesized compounds multiple working techniques and equipment are available. Especially the explanation of reaction mechanisms requires special know-how which the group has established and refined over years. In particular, we use Schlenk techniques, high temperature synthesis in the furnace, reaction in ionic liquids and solvothermal reactions.
