EPR laboratory

Description

The paramagnetic electronic resonance instrument (EPR ELEXYS E500 Bruker) is used to quantify and characterize both neutral and charged free radicals. In particular, it is possible to determine the spectroscopic properties, life times and reactivity of species containing unpaired electrons. In our laboratory EPR spectroscopy is also used for the study of supramolecular architectures by introducing appropriate paramagnetic probes. In this way it is possible to obtain information on non-covalent complexes that are complementary to those obtainable with traditional spectroscopic techniques.
