Spectroscopy

On this, and subsequent pages, you can see some of our work in the areas of spectroscopy. Currently this is largely based on multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, and vibrational (IR and Raman) spectroscopy. We have a slowly evolving set of pages covering multinuclear NMR studies of a variety of nuclei. You can access tools to aid in the analysis of data as well as access our database and data repository.

You can also access spectroscopic data recorded by our group from here

Software for plotting, measuring, simulating NMR data is available from SpinWorks or Mestrec
