Mission statement

The Research Resources Center for Magnetic Resonance is interdepartmental and interdisciplinary facility that provides an access to the instrumentation, expertise, and infrastructure to carry out and support chemical, physical and biological research utilizing NMR, NQR and EPR spectroscopy as well as magnetic resonance microimaging.

Complexity of experiments that can be performed in the Center could vary from the most basic ones, so called routine measurements, to the most advanced ones, requiring an extended work schedule and a combination of various magnetic resonance techniques. The Center provides a set of modern spectrometers to work with samples in liquid, amorphous and crystalline phases in the temperature range from 110 K (4 K for EPR) to 870 K, depending on the spectrometer and technique used.

The equipment of the Center allows one to give theoretical and practical courses, classes and seminars for students and employees of St. Petersburg State University in order to strengthen the curriculum in the area of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and in order to train qualified users of modern spectral methods. For external academic organizations (institutes, universities) conducting research is possible on the basis of scientific cooperation. On commercial basis, all services of the Center could be provided to external users, such as medical, pharmacological and forensic organisations, as well as museums, technological and research centers, industry etc.

Employees of the Center are co-authors of articles and participate in conferences.
