Developing fast magic-angle spinning NMR methods for applications to biological systems
Supervisors: Steven P. Brown (Physics) and Józef Lewandowski (Chemistry)
In this project that is supported by Bruker, you will develop MAS NMR methods that make use of state-of-the-art fast MAS technology. The project will combine experimental solid-state NMR in the University of Warwick Magnetic Resonance Laboratory (a suite of solid-state NMR spectrometers up to 700 MHz, also hosting the UK High-Field Solid-State NMR Facility (850 MHz and 1 GHz) with simulation, e.g., using the SIMPSON software that implements the density operator quantum-mechanics description of the NMR experiment. The focus will be on developing solid-state NMR methods using model compounds, of relevance for application to biological systems including plant cell walls.
