The research within the NMR group is in the following main areas:
* Study surface speciation and coordination of ions and metal complexes on mineral surfaces with relevance to froth flotation and environmental issues;
* Study the conformations of the Aβ-protein causing Alzheimer's disease;
* Study structure and purity of new tribological additives;
* Find correlations between molecular structure and various NMR parameters, like chemical shift anisotropy.
The spectrometer is a CMX-360 Chemagnetics/Varian Infinity Plus. It is possible to study both liquid and solid states in double or triple resonance probes for magic angle spinning.
