SmallTalks [about Nanoscience]: Cellulose ethers studied by DNP-NMR spectroscopy

​​​Welcome to a seminar in the series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] arranged by the Excellence Initiative Nano​. Hampus Karlsson, PhD; Dep. of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering will talk about DNP-NMR. 

This is an excellent opportunity for the Nano community to learn how this specialized NMR spectroscopy available at Chalmers can be used.

​​

The seminar will be held on Zoom

Abstract:
Etherified cellulose materials are used in a wide range of products and can for instance be found in pharmaceutical applications, many other industrial sectors as well as in common household items. In order to create consistently functional end products, control of the chemical modifications and properties such as degree of substitution and domain size properties are of paramount importance. In this project we apply Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) enhanced solid state NMR spectroscopy to approach these questions and investigate degree of substitution and spatial distribution of modifications in cellulose ethers with highly diverse chemical properties."
 
The seminar will be divided in to two parts, where the first part consists of a pure overview over the field, and is held on a generally accessible level (15 min). The second part will be more technical (15-20 minutes).
