In 2016, a new solid-state NMR centre was founded at KU Leuven Chem&Tech. The NMR dedicated facility implements a series of optimizations to create an ultra-stable environment, optimal for high-resolution NMR spectroscopy. At present this initiative has evolved into an NMR/X-ray platform operating as convergent research node with focus on energy, molecular water research, food and health research. The centre now houses 6 spectrometers with fields ranging from 300 MHz to 800MHz, highlights being 500 Mhz and 800 MHz spectrometers, each with unique capabilities for multi-irradiation. The 800 MHz spectrometer was acquired in a consortium with Bruker, to develop sensitivity-enhanced high resolution NMR for different application areas. The NMR centre @Leuven Chem&Tech provides research spectrometer time to both internal and external users (from industry and academia, national and international) using a proposal-based allocation system similar to those operated at synchrotron beaml!
