Solid state NMR
This project focuses on the development and application of novel solid-state NMR probe molecules for the determination of the spatial distribution of molecular catalysts, anchored inside the pores of three-dimensional support materials, the determination of intermediates, reaction mechanisms, and reaction kinetics at immobilized molecular catalysts by in situ NMR methods, and the study of transport properties of model reactants inside porous supports by pulsed-field gradient NMR (PFG NMR). The results of these investigations will significantly support the development of highly active and selective catalysts and the modelling of the reaction systems under study.
