This proposal aims at obtaining financial support for the purchase of a 300 MHz NMR spectrometer equipped with a special module “InsightMR” devoted to perform continuous-flow NMR experiments and a special probehead to measure low-gamma nuclei such as 57Fe and 109Ag. This spectrometer will be installed in the laboratories of Prof. Dr. Martin Albrecht, managed by the group of the Department (PD. Dr. J Furrer) and will be freely accessible to any internal researcher that requires the use of this instrument for his/her research. This NMR spectrometer will be particularly well-suited for detailed investigations of the formation, reactivity, and catalytic properties of inorganic molecules and for obtaining structural information of complexes that contain nuclei such as 57Fe, 103Rh or 109Ag.Our current NMR facility is not equipped for measuring low-gamma nuclei. In addition, All NMR spectrometers (4) are currently overbooked and kinetic measurements are only conceivable in manual mode, in off-peak periods, require a lot of experimental time. Some of the measurements planned in this proposal are actually not conceivable using our current equipment.As such, for the investigators of this proposal, the requested equipment would open new fields to NMR spectroscopic research that are currently not feasible with the current equipment available. Owing to the broad variety of samples falling into the application field of this NMR spectrometer dedicated to measure low-gamma nuclei on one hand and continuous-flow NMR experiments on the other hand, it is expected that a diversified interdisciplinary usership will be able to benefit from this new equipment. In view of the current countrywide lack of accessibility to such a dedicated system within the Swiss university institutions, the equipment will close this gap and will enable us to keep up with modern state-of-the-art technologies, explore new applications fields and extend our competences.
