Further Information






Pro2NMR is a joint resource of the Institut für Technische und Makromolekulare Chemie (ITMC) of RWTH Aachen University and the Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie (KIT).

The common aim for the Pro2NMR-Centre is networking, concentration and structuring of given competences. As well as starting new NMR activities in the field of material and civil engineering science as those are available at the places of ITMC of RWTH Aachen University and chemical engineering / chemistry at the KIT. The given equipment at both places allows, also for users outside of the members of the project, a wide and efficient potential by using the devices of the centre to answer new questions from their scientific research. The short ways between users and developers will allow a contemporary, topic and user specific development of NMR methods. By that process also a cooperation in education and in the operative science technology level shall be established.

Scientific aim of the Pro2NMR centre shall be to enable and develop the big potential of NMR by using the available devices of the centre by especially aiming product and process characterisation, especially in-situ. In addition to spatially resolved images (MRI) one can also use spectroscopic or relaxation properties to get information on a molecular level for real interesting products and techniques. Monitoring of processes, today often performed by optical spectroscopy, could be done also by NMR-spectroscopy but offering more detailed information at the same time concerning reactants, intermediates and final products. The same is true for detailed NMR-studies on products, e. g. on polymers. 

In operation the centre is formed at KIT from various institutes across different faculties like "Chemistry and Biosciences" and "Chemical and Process Engineering" located at the Campus Süd as well as at Campus Nord. At RWTH Aachen University the Institut für Technische und Makromolekulare Chemie enriches this centre with numerous cooperation partners from the same faculty as well as from the faculties of "Mechanical Engeneering", "Georecources and Materials Engeneering" as well as "Medicine". Due to this combination the needed concentration of know-how and technical equipment is well given.

Follow the links to MARC and KIT for details about the available experimental equipment in the centre.
The work of the joint resource is ruled by the Pro2NMR agreement between the two facilities. This agreement is completed by the cooperation agreement of MARC and the cooperation agreement of KIT. According to the regulations in the agreements the usage of the devices and the expertise of the centre is possible by costs and is not limited to members of the centre or scientific institutions.
