Solid-State Probe for NMR Studies at Macquarie University

Project: Other

Description

Infrastructure Name: CP/MAS upgrade for AVIIIHD500 NMR Spectrometer

While liquids are generally amenable to routine study, analysis of solids and soft matter typically presents a far greater challenge. Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a valuable tool to study local structure, dynamics, kinetics, functional groups, and active sites in a variety of chemical, environmental, mineralogical and biological system. It is one of the most powerful techniques for molecular-level investigation of interface. It provides unique insights into structure and properties of solids, and is a rapidly growing field internationally. MQ currently has no infrastructure in this area, and researchers must collaborate with better equipped institutions to undertake research.
