INAC develops ultra-sensitive NMR technique

INAC’s magnetic resonance lab (SCIB) has set up shop at the Nanocharacterization Platform’s NMR unit, which recently acquired dynamic nuclear polarization capabilities thanks to new equipment (the world’s third of its kind) operating a 10-Tesla magnetic field.
The lab’s goal is to leverage the enhanced sensitivity (10 to 1,000 times greater than traditional NMR) and substantially shorter measurement times of this emerging characterization technique to make major steps forward in functionalized surface characterization, from discriminating between adsorption and covalent grafting to estimating grafting rates and positioning grafted molecules.
