Chirality-sensitive Nuclear Magnetoelectric Resonance

Project description

Characterising chirality by magnetoelectric resonance

Many biomolecules have a common property (chirality): a molecule cannot be superimposed on its mirror image. Although structurally very similar, the two unlike forms (enantiomers) may behave differently, meaning that only one may be desired for a given application. Consequently, chirality influences synthetic chemistry, drug development, and food processing. The EU-funded NMER project will develop a novel approach to magnetic resonance, called nuclear magnetoelectric resonance (NMER) spectroscopy, to fully characterize the chiral structure of the molecule. Observation of NMER effects will contribute to a better understanding of chiral interactions on a molecular scale without the need to chemically modify the sample.
