Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (RMN)



Our platform includes a set of seven NMR spectrometers (from 9.4 to 28 T) for molecular characterization of solutions, solids or other types of samples (tissues, cells, gels...). The NMR applications of liquids range from the structural determination of small organic molecules in solution to the study of soluble macromolecules such as proteins, polysaccharides or soluble polymers. The NMR of solids is used to determine the atomic-scale structure of amorphous or disordered materials, such as glasses, polymers, catalyst surfaces, energy materials (battery, solar) or porous materials (zeolites, metal-organic frameworks).
Our platform is open to the academic and industrial world and offers services ranging from simple acquisition of NMR spectra to advanced data analysis and interpretation.
