Research Group: Characterisation and Analytics

Currently Active: 
Yes

The Characterisation and Analytics Group brings together specialists from mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction to form a world-class, research-led analytical problem solving team.

Powder and Materials X-ray Diffraction

Our state-of-the-art instrumentation allows us to measure X-ray scattering from a wide variety of samples at different temperatures and under different environments. From a simple phase analysis of an impure powder to a variable temperature study of a multi-later thin film.

The facility is available for researchers across the University and training can be arranged by contacting Dr Mark Light.

NMR Spectroscopy

Our state-of-the-art instrumentation is used for the characterisation of small and large molecules and assemblies and for the identification of individual constituents of complex mixtures and underpins a vast array of research topics e.g. for organic chemistry, chemical biology, inorganic and supramolecular chemistry.

The facility is available for researchers across the University and training can be arranged by contacting Dr Neil Wells.

Mass Spectrometry and Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry

Our state-of-the-art instrumentation focuses on organic/bio-organics mass spectrometry and provides several open access mass spectrometers together with application-specific instruments and techniques. The facility also specialises in separation techniques and the application of hyphenated approaches e.g. GC-MS, GCxGC-MS, HPLC-MS and SFC-MS.

The facility is available for researchers across the University and training can be arranged by contacting Professor John Langley or Julie Herniman.
