Many researchers use NMR and EPR spectroscopy techniques of one form or another in their research. The ones listed here include those of us who are developing new methods and techniques. Our activities span instrumentation development, molecular characterisation, and photochemistry. The lists given below are an attempt to provide a brief summary of this diversity. The links to individual's web pages provide more details.
