Solid state NMR
NMR spectroscopy has been around for more than 50 years and yet it remains an active and high-profile area of research as its range of applications is still expanding rapidly. Research in the NMR Spectroscopy group is centred upon the further development of experimental NMR techniques, including two-dimensional NMR and solid-state magic-angle spinning (MAS) NMR, and the novel application of these techniques to chemistry, mineralogy, and materials science. The group has two dedicated, state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers, equipped with 9.4 and 4.7 Tesla superconducting magnets, that can perform an enormous range of experiments on both solid and liquid samples. Our research has experimental, theoretical, and computational elements and projects are available that allow the relative proportions of these to be tailored to suit individual interests.
