When designing new molecules for pharmaceutical and other uses, the key is to combine the right elements in the right way. The same is true of the training vital to nurturing the skills needed to make it happen.     A perfect example has seen Southampton University join forces with Oxford and Bristol to establish an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) integrating two vital aspects of chemistry in a powerful new way. With strong links to industry ensuring its work feeds into the real economy, the Theory and Modelling in Chemical Sciences (TMCS) CDT is producing tomorrow’s research leaders and equipping...

Spotlight On: Cross Faculty NMR Centre

By | Equipment, Just Added | No Comments
Each month we post a new edition to the SES 'Spotlight On...' series, showcasing equipment at our institutions, providing information and case studies for interested researchers/industries, and promoting better use of already available equipment. The Cross Faculty NMR Centre (CFNMR Centre) was opened in 2006 to provide ultra-high field NMR instruments to researchers across the faculties of natural sciences and medicine. Now it hosts one Bruker 800 MHz NMR spectrometer, equipped with 1H/13C/15N/2H cryoprobe and a cooling sampleJet, one Bruker 600 MHz NMR spectrometer with cryoprobe, and another Bruker 600 MHz NMR dedicated for biosolids studies. NMR is used to characterise the structure...
