Successful installation of 1.2 GHz NMR system at ETH Zürich and delivery of the third 1.2 GHz NMR to MPI Göttingen

20 Aug 2020

On July, 22, 2020 the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences of the ETH Zürich, Switzerland announced the successful installation and acceptance of the Avance™ NEO 1.2 GHz NMR system. Following the acceptance of the world's first 1.2 GHz NMR at the CERM of the University of Florence earlier this year, this marks the second installation of a 1.2 GHz NMR in the world. ETH and research groups headed by professors Beat Meier, Matthias Ernst, and Alexander Barnes will utilize their new 1.2 GHz NMR system to enable the development of new solid-state NMR techniques, and to apply these techniques to study materials and biological systems, including proteins fibrils which are linked to diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. The 1.2 GHz spectrometer will also be used as a basis for further improving NMR methodology towards in-cell structural biology, and to investigate solid catalysts and functional materials, e. g. for energy conversion and data storage. On the same day, July 22, 2020, the third 1.2 GHz NMR system was delivered to the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. Its installation is underway.
