  • Solid state NMR platform

    Solid-state NMR can provide very accurate information about the structure and the dynamics of molecules and ions in solid materials. This is often crucial for the understanding and the development of new materials. Solid-state NMR is a sensitive technique to short-range order that surpasses traditional techniques of materials characterization as X-ray diffraction or electron microscopy in the study of amorphous materials and complements these techniques in the study of crystalline materials. Furthermore, solid state NMR can provide dynamic information with atomic specificity in highly disordered and even fully amorphous materials. The technologies of the solid-state NMR platform at the CIC are specially designed for the characterization of organic, inorganic and paramagnetic materials including variable temperature studies (-120 C degrees to +400 C degrees).

    SERVICES OFFERED BY THE ASSET

    Analysis of dopants and trace elements

    Solid state NMR is suitable for the determination of the presence and the composition of traces of dopants in a material independently of the state of the compound.

    Composition

    Solid state NMR can determine the composition of a solid material independently of the state of the compound, including amorphous, polymeric, disordered and semi-liquid materials.

    Contamination

    Solid state NMR can determine the presence of even very small quantities of contaminants in a solid material and help in the understanding of is impact in the material performance.

    Corrosion

    Solid state NMR can be used to detect and quantify the corrosion of a compound.

    Deformulation of unknown compounds and mixtures.

    Deformulation of unknown compounds and mixtures.

    Material characterization

    Solid state NMR can be used to characterize the chemical composition and the physicochemical properties of an unknown material.

    Material degradation

    Solid state NMR can determine the presence of even very small quantities of side products produced during a material degradation process and help in the understanding of is impact in the material performance.

    Variable temperature tests

    Our solid state NMR capabilities allow us the measurement of variable temperature experiments. Permitting us the determination of the effects of temperature in the material performance.
