Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

Solid-state NMR can provide very accurate information about the structure and the dynamics of molecules and ions in electrochemical materials. This is crucial for the understanding and the development of energy storage devices. Solid-state NMR is a sensitive technique to short-range order that surpasses traditional techniques of materials characterization as X-ray diffraction or electron microscopy in the study of amorphous materials and complements these techniques in the study of crystalline materials. Furthermore, solid state NMR can provide dynamic information with atomic specificity in highly disordered and even fully amorphous materials. The technologies of the solid-state NMR platform at the CIC Energigune are specially designed for the characterization of the materials used for energy storage including in-situ measurements during device operation and variable temperature studies (-120 C degrees to +400 C degrees).

Bruker Avance III 200 MHz

The Avance III 200 MHz was installed at CIC in March 2012. It is a wide bore, low magnetic field magnet dedicated to the study of paramagnetic materials which are a frequent component in battery and supercapacitor electrodes.

Available Probes:
Double resonance 1H/19F-X DVT CPMAS 1.3 mm probe that can reach ultra-fast spinning speeds of up to 65kHz.

Double resonance 1H-X DVT CPMAS 4 mm probe, that can reach temperatures up to 400ºC and spinning speeds up to 18 kHz.

Variable temperature measurements between 400ºC and -100ºC.

 

Bruker Avance III 500 MHz

The Avance III 500 MHz was installed at CIC in April 2012. It is a wide bore magnet especially suited for non magnetic materials where high resolution is desired.

Available Probes:

Double resonance 1H/19F-X DVT CPMAS 1.3 mm probe that can reach ultra-fast spinning speeds of up to 65 kHz


Triple resonance 1H-X–Y, DVT CPMAS 2.5 mm probe that can spin up to 35 kHz


Static wideline H-X probe for in situ electrochemical studies

Variable temperature measurements between 300ºC and -100ºC.

Measurements The solid state NMR platform at CIC Energigune is open to external services for public institutes and private companies. We can provide very detailed structural information on a large variety of materials (organic, organometallic, polymers, alloys, biological, etc.) in a large variety of states (crystalline, amorphous, soft matter, etc.).If you want to know if your material is suitable for solid state NMR or for more information about fees and conditions, please contact: Juan Miguel Lopez at jmlopez@cicenergigune.com. All information will be treated with absolute confidentiality.

Juan Miguel Lopez del Amo
Juan Miguel Lopez del Amo

Dr. Juan Miguel Lopez del Amo completed his PhD at the Free University of Berlin (Germany) in 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Hans Heinrich Limbach and Prof. Gerd Buntkowsky. His thesis was dedicated to the development and applications of solid state NMR to the structural and physicochemical characterization of solid organic and organometallic compounds. His work was specially focused on the quantification and theoretical description of multiple kinetic isotope effects and quantum tunneling processes in hydrogen bonds. After his PhD. he joined the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP-Berlin, Germany) as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Bernd Reif, where he was involved in the development of proton detection-based solid state NMR experiments for the characterization of the structure and dynamics of perdeuterated microcrystalline proteins. During this time he also applied solid state NMR and solid state DNP NMR to the analysis of amyloid fibrils and their disaggregation processes. In 2011 he joined the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental health, Munich (Germany) to work in solid state NMR studies of the amyloid B-peptide directly involved in the Alzheimer's disease. Since September 2012 Dr. Juan Miguel Lopez del Amo is facility manager of the solid state NMR facility at the CIC Energigune.
