The Chemistry Labs Group (LQU) function is to offer and to manage the infrastructure of the User’s Chemistry Laboratory and the Internal Chemistry Laboratories. It is also responsible for training and technical support to users of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), allowing them to work safely in the handling of chemical reagents and in the preparation and compliance of the samples with the different experimental techniques available at the LNLS’s beamlines.

In the User’s Chemistry Laboratory, the users have at their disposal a variety of equipment such as Exhauster Cabins, Scales, pHmeter, Baths, Furnaces, Centrifuges and some reagents.

The LQU team is also responsible for the management of the Internal Chemistry Laboratories (LQIs). The LQIs are intended to provide infrastructure for internal LNLS researchers in the research, development and improvement of new materials.
