Solid state NMR

If your sample is neither dissolved in solution nor crystallized into single crystal, solid state nmr can help you get valuable structural information. Our wide-bore Varian 400 MHz solid nmr system has three channels, capable of doing most of nuclei, especially low gamma ones. The following figure shows how 13C Cross Polarization Magic Angle Spinning (CP-MAS) solid state NMR is used to characterize the structure of  the catalytically significant sites on solid catalyst surfaces (PNAS, 2012) by Prof. Marks group:
