As a result of lab renovations I’ve had to pack up and move three times in the last year or so.  This had the unintended benefit of forcing me to put the glassware that I didn’t use on a regular basis into the communal pile, while giving me a pretty strong incentive to build up a personal stash of useful equipment.  Here’s what made the grade:

  • (1) Hot plate stirrer, with temperature regulator
  • (1) Stir plate, regular size
  • (1) Stir plate, small (~5cm diameter)
  • (2) 2.5cm stir bar
  • (2) 1 cm stir bar (bead style)
  • (2) 0.5 cm stir bar
  • (8) Micro stir bar
  • (1) Oil bath (250mL crystallization dish)
  • (4) Clamp
  • (1) Ring Clamp
  • (5) Wash Bottle, 1L (for Hexanes, Ethyl Acetate, Dichloromethane, Methanol and Acetone)
  • (1) Wash Bottle, 0.25L (Water)
  • (1) Column, ~2cm
  • (1) Column, ~1.5cm
  • (1) Column, ~1cm
  • (2×20) Test Tubes, 30mL  (approx. volume)
  • (1×20) Test Tubes, 20mL  (approx. volume)
  • (2×20) Test Tubes, 10mL  (approx. volume)
  • (4) RBF, 250mL
  • (4) RBF, 100mL
  • (3) RBF, 50mL
  • (1) Reflux Condenser, 24 joint
  • (1) Reflux Condenser, 19 joint
  • (1) Reflux Condenser, vial joint
  • (1) Graduated Cylinder, 50mL
  • (1) Graduated Cylinder, 10mL
  • (1) Syringe, 3mL
  • (10) Micropipette, 5uL
  • (1) Jar, 200mL (for TLCs)
  • (5) Subaseal, 24 joint
  • (5) Subaseal, 19 joint
  • (1) Gas regulator, glass (for columns)
  • (1) Three-way Adapter
  • (1) Sep. Funnel, 250mL
  • (1) Sep. Funnel, 125mL
  • (3) Vial, 20mL
  • (1) Powder Funnel
  • (1) Hirsch Funnel
  • (1) Buchner Funnel
  • (1) Gasket
  • (2) Filter Flask
  • (1) Spatula
  • (1) Microspatula
  • (1) Scoopula
  • (1) Calculator

Lab Kit (Excel Format)

 

This was enough for a good 95% of my reactions, with the more specialized equipment (glass peptide synthesizers, etc) split with others in the group.
