Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a powerful spectroscopical technique that provides detailed information about the structure and stereochemistry of organic compounds, organometallic compounds and bio-molecules. Structural studies can range from small molecules to large polymers and proteins. Dynamic, kinetic and conformational studies can be also performed.
It is a non destructive technique that has applications in a wide range of disciplines, almost all areas of Chemistry and some areas of Biology.


The facility owns different combinations of spectrometers and probes:
