Positioning

The SACS research group (leader: Prof. Laurence Charles) aims to develop new methodologies for the spectroscopic and spectrometric analysis of molecules and materials by combining complementary techniques, namely Mass Spectrometry (MS), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Electronic Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR).

The team has access to the Spectropole instruments, which are part of the technological platform of the Fédération des Sciences Chimiques de Marseille, as well as to several EPR instruments located on the premises to the ICR. SACS research activities aim not only to develop each of these specific techniques, but also to address complex analytical issues through their synergistic combination.

Expertise

  • Mass spectrometry, more specifically applied to synthetic polymers and dendrimers
  • High resolution liquid NMR (structure determination and interactions)
  • Diffusion NMR (liquid / HRMAS): PGSE and DOSY experiments
  • Solid-state NMR and Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP)
  • Spin-trapping / EPR / MS coupling
  • Physical-chemistry of radical species
