NMR Analytical Tools for Biofuel Research

NMR spectroscopy is one of the most versatile methods available for chemical analysis, but also has excellent capabilities for studying dynamic processes, and even the spatial distribution of compounds. This work applies NMR spectroscopy to analysis of feedstock materials, materials after various deconstruction reactions, and model systems for biofuel production. New NMR experiments will provide desired information about chemical structures, dynamics, etc. Experiments are done in conjunction other groups in the EBI to provide samples from processes and chemistry being studied developed in the Institute.
