The Centre for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), conducting high resolution NMR measurements of liquid samples, was established in November 2003 as an independent unit of the Ruđer Bošković Institute.
The Centre conducts scientific research and provides services for the scientists and researchers from the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) and the Universities of Zagreb, Rijeka, Split and Osijek. The Centre also provides educational and professional support to researchers from government institutions and the pharmaceutical industry.
Research at the Centre for NMR includes various topics in organic, inorganic, bioorganic and pharmaceutical chemistry. Theoretical calculations of molecular structures and NMR spectral parameters are performed in order to support the experimental measurements. Some of the investigations are focused on natural compounds and photochemistry products.
The scientists from the Centre participate in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate studies at Universities of Zagreb, Split, Rijeka and Osijek. Active collaborations are maintained with research groups from the USA, Austria, Slovenia, Macedonia, Hungary, Russia, and the Czech Republic.
