Senior Lecturer, Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
Dr. Pullarkat incorporated the NMReady into undergraduate chemistry labs at NTU for over 200 students, giving each of them hands-on access to NMR and aligning it with his lecture course on NMR.
Dr. Pullarkat’s research interests include the investigation of Ru, Pd and Ir metallacycles and related systems for their potential as catalysts in various organic synthetic scenarios, especially catalytic protocols for the asymmetric generation of new chiral phosphines from non-chiral substrates.
"It is great that we have been able to make a real NMR spectrometer available to each first year undergraduate student, in the same way as we do for FT IR and other spectrometers. The unique ability of the benchtop system to plug the gap between theory and actual hands-on experience has been greatly appreciated by our students."
