Summary on Grant Application Form
The equipment sought is to renew and extend the multinuclear fast magic angle spinning capability across the spectrometer range at Warwick improving the efficiency of the methodology and opening up new exciting possibilities. Solid state NMR is used in a wide range of materials characterisation at Warwick including glasses, zeolites, minerals, sol-gels, ceramic composites and membranes, and biomolecules. Atomic scale information revealed by NMR has often provided crucial insight into these materials, a number of which have technological applications. Greatly improved Multiple Quantum NMR performance will became available (at 14.1 T) allowing new systems, such as 17O in biomolecules, with large electric field gradients to be studied. Many modern solid state NMR experiments now need either fast spinning or high rf fields (or both). The 4 mm probe, which will be used on all the three lower field instruments will provide these and allow, min combination with high field data, complete determination of the NMR parameters in multisize systems. It will also permit studies of tin and lead in glassy or disordered systems, vanadium in ceramic glazes and improve carbon spectra from surface functionalised beads.
