Solid State NMR


Although solid state NMR is outside our primary area of expertise, it is an invaluable tool that is complementary to diffraction techniques.  In addition to using solution NMR as a test for bulk purity (by comparison of the single crystal and bulk spectra) it can provide a unique understanding of the dynamics with in a system.

We are also currently engaged in a project using NMR to probe the effectiveness of hydrogen location with diffraction techniques and Density Functional Theory (DFT).  As with all solid state NMR work, this is being carried out in collaboration with Nick Rees.
