Welcome to the Buntkowsky group

The scientific focus of the research group Physical Chemistry of Condensed Matter is related to development and application of solid-state NMR and hyperpolarization enhanced NMR techniques towards the characterization of complex systems and processes inside these systems. For these investigations the group has a fully equipped solid-state NMR and hyperpolarization NMR laboratory with five state of the art high-field NMR spectrometers, a wet-lab for the synthesis of model compounds and the infrastructure to work under air-sensitive or inert conditions. These techniques are applied to a variety of systems, ranging from functional materials such as catalytically active metal-nanoparticles over technical catalysts to immobilized homogeneous catalysts and electric functional materials (dielectrics, relaxor ferroelectrics, battery materials) over biomaterials such as enzymes, enzyme models and hybrid materials to confined systems, liquids and gases.
