Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy – or NMR - extracts precise structural information from chemical compounds based on the energy transitions of their nuclear spins. Not only is NMR an essential, efficient tool to validate, elucidate and characterize the structure of compounds at atomic scale, its distinct non-intrusive nature enables the study molecules “in action”. In the area of catalysis research, NMR is a lively field of development where it is used to study kinetic and dynamic properties of catalysts, follow formation of intermediates and products in situ and in real-time, and ultimately provide an unrivalled look into reaction mechanisms.

The NMR department at the MPI für Kohlenforschung supplies the expertise for the implementation of standard and advanced NMR experiments and their analytic interpretation as well as the development of novel methodologies for the domestic research groups. We are dedicated as well to teaching and research.
