D15 Slovenian NMR Centre

Slovenian NMR Centre

Slovenian NMR centre is a national facility offering access and expertise in NMR to users in academic and industrial institutions. In addition, it combines scientific activities of two groups engaged in: (i) studies of structure and dynamics of biologically important (macro)molecules, and (ii) development of soluble metal-ligand complexes that are able to catalyze asymmetric organic transformations.
