Applications to Materials

Warwick Materials Solid-State NMR Group has a wide ranging research portfolio targeting 'energy materials' systems such as solid oxide fuel cell membranes and electrodes, hydrogen storage, batteries and H conduction membranes, and solar cell devices; in adition to broad-based ceramics, glasses, bioglasses, polymers, ionic/plastic crystals and organometalic research.

Calculations

Calculations are an essential method of extracting the maximum information from NMR experimentation. With this aim in mind we combine experimental techniques along with DFT and density-matrix calculation to improve our understanding in chemical, biological and materials systems.

Applications to Pharmaceuticals and Supramolecular Chemistry

In collaboration with industry we have developed advanced 2D NMR techniques to identify different forms of pharamceutical ingredients and to determine the interactions between molecules to better understand supramolecular assembly.

Methodology Development

Warwick Solid-State NMR Group has a long history of NMR methodology development, we are continuing the trend by developing new techniques such as spinning-angle encoding, DOR and DNP, and applications of existing techniques to new systems.

Biomolecular NMR

We develop and apply solid-state NMR methods to study structure and dynamics of amyloid fibrils, membrane proteins, large protein complexes and intact plants.

Pulse Sequence Development

Together with several other academic groups we have developed various pulse sequences to improve the method of extracting information from NMR spectra. These include increasing 1H resolution, measuring J and dipolar couplings, relaxation, exchange rates.
