We play the magic of magnetism
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a powerful analytical and characterization technique that has been widely used in chemistry, materials science, biochemistry and medical diagnosis. The uniqueness of NMR stems from its high chemical resolution, its non-invasive nature, and the capability to offer a full range of structural and molecular information.
Solid-state NMR is at the spearhead of NMR technique that aims at resolving structures and dynamics in solids (also capable of studying liquids, gases and mixed phases). Solid-state NMR is able to capture the anisotropy of local chemical environment as well as dynamics of different states. It advances our knowledge through techniques such as multi-dimensional spectroscopy, relaxometry, imaging etc.
Solid-state NMR lab @ ZJU is equiped with one 14.1 Tesla and one 9.4 Tesla Bruker solid-state NMR instruments along with a set of special probes. The primary interest of the group includes the development of NMR techniques (e.g. advanced pulse sequences, in-situ techniques, low-field NMR) and materials sciences (e.g. porous materials, light-emitting quantum dots, photocatalysis, drug delivery etc.).
We spin the world of chemistry
We develop advanced NMR methodologies and apply them to study functional materials for clean energy and biomedical applications. We are particularly interested in the surface chemistry and fundamental mechanisms. We use the comprehensive knowledge obtained from NMR to improve the engineering of new materials. In addition, we engage in other intriguing projects in interdisciplinary areas - project X.
