INSTRUMENTATION

The CRMN was conceived around the installation of the first worldwide GHz spectrometer, delivered in the summer of 2009 and progressively equipped with a variety of state-of-the-art accessories (including ultra-fast magic-angle spinning probes and solution cryoprobes). After 10 years of operation this machine remains the most powerful high resolution NMR spectrometer in the world, allowing the study of a broad range of samples. In particular, it has led to major breakthroughs in the field of functionalized materials, heterogeneous catalysis, energy storage, structural biology for health, and metabolomic profiling in oncology. Around this instrument, a platform has been built up of six other 400, 500, 600, 700, and 800 (x2) MHz frequency spectrometers, offering outstanding research capabilities. Today, the center additionally hosts a unique hyperpolarized NMR platform with two 400 MHz and 800 MHz magic angle spinning (MAS) DNP systems as well as two polarizers for dissolution DNP.
