NMR technology and its different areas of application

NMR stands for nuclear magnetic resonance, and it is used to explore the structure and composition of a molecule, among other things.

NMR is a common analytical technology, but there are a number of different methods that can be used within the field. Researchers come to the Swedish NMR Centre to use NMR spectroscopy to study everything from protein structures to various material properties and biomarkers in blood. 

Structural biology

The Swedish NMR centre is an international and national research infrastructure for structural biology within the SWEDSTRUCT and NMR for Life projects. We offer access to specialist support and NMR spectrometers for solution NMR in the range between 900 MHz and 500 MHz. More about structural biology


Within NMR for Life, the Swedish NMR Centre is a national facility for metabolomics by NMR. In addition, together with the Umeå-based MS-facility, we provide access to the Swedish Metabolomics Centre.
The instrumentation in Gothenburg involves an automatic cooled sample changer hooked up to an 800 MHz magnet. Sample handling is automated and followed through a bar-coding system. Using standard 1D experiments, the system will support a throughput of approximately 120 samples per day. More about metabolomics

Material Science

NMR is en excellent method for applications in material science. We offer advanced NMR instrumentation and expertise for a variety of solid state MAS and diffusion NMR applications. More about Material Science

Chemical biology

NMR is a superior method for FBS, (fragment-based screening) or the study of protein-ligand interactions. A library of 1.000 compounds can often be screened against a target molecule within 24 hrs. More about Chemical biology

Small molecules

NMR is en excellent method for the analysis of small molecules and natural products.We offer state-of-the-art equipment and expertise. More about small molecules
