Magnetic Resonance Center (MARC)
The Magnetic Resonance Center (MARC) is a joint facility of the different workgroups of ITMC. It is utilized to accomodate all activities of the ITMC workgroups concerning the area of magnetic resonance. MARC is one of a few laboratories worldwide well equipped for investigating a broad range of topics by NMR and to exploit the full potential of NMR technology.
The NMR machines serve high-resolution NMR spectroscopy to analyse the structure and dynamics of molecules in solution (liquid state NMR) and in the solid state (magic angel spinning [MAS] NMR), to monitor the progress of processes in chemical, biological and medical technology.
The unique equipment and expertise is applied in a variety of interdisciplinary research projects within ITMC, RWTH Aachen University, international cooperative projects, and industrial collaborations.
Bruker DSX 500MHz
Workspace with the Bruker AVIII HD 500 MHz spectrometer. This device is mainly used for NMR-MAS as well as for NMR-imaging (MRI), NMR-Flow-Imaging and NMR-Difusion measurements.
