A research team in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware has received a National Science Foundation grant of nearly $2.2 million to acquire a highly specialized 750-megahertz nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer that will serve as a valuable resource for scientists throughout the region.
The instrument -- a major step forward in the research infrastructure of both UD and the state of Delaware -- will be used to support exciting research activities in areas "ranging from chemistry to biological sciences, to marine biosciences, to materials science and engineering," according to Tatyana Polenova, associate professor and principal investigator for the project.
Co-principal investigators are Cecil Dybowski, professor, and Sharon Rozovsky, assistant professor, and a key part of the team will be Steve Bai, director of UD's NMR facility who oversees the operation and maintenance of the multiple NMR spectrometers on campus. The grant is funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
