Laboratory for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy

NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectroscopy is essential i many fields of research and science like e.g. chemistry, physics, biochemistry, and medicine. The method exploits the magnetic properties of the atomic nuclei and depending upon usage NMR methods may give information about structure, dynamics, and chemical surroundings of atoms, molecules and solid matter.

At SINTEF we apply NMR to determine molecular structure and to study solid material's properties together with a broad range of partners and customers.

In our lab we have two "Bruker AVANCE III" instruments

  • One instrument for liquid samples (9,4 Tesla magnet, 400 MHz)
  • One instrument for solid samples (11,7 Tesla magnet, 500 MHz)

Both instruments are equipped to cover many sorts of NMR experiments and analyses:

  • Most NMR active nuclei can be studied
  • Possibilities for variable temperature experiments (77K – 623K)
  • A gas flow probe can be used to study gas-solid reactions up to about 623 K at 1 atm pressure.

Our researchers and technicians are familiar with many different type of experiments (1D and 2D) for a range of nuclei (incl. dynamic studies) for both liquid and solid samples. They have also experience in the use of various data simulations and in inert treatments of samples.
