Solid-state NMR Characterization of CSMC Materials

Inorganic metal oxides with group 13 metals offer good targets for solid-state NMR analyses. Our group focuses on the characterization of group 13 cluster precursors, and the transformation of the precursors to thin films. Specifically, the group has been investigating and characterizing [Ga133-OH)62-OH)18(H2O)24](NO3)15 cluster precursors and the corresponding mixed gallium and indium heterometallic clusters [Ga13-xInx3-OH)62-OH)18(H2O)(NO3>15 (x = 1-6) using solid-state NMR.

Members of the CSMC team (L to R): Zayd Ma (Post-doc), Katie Wentz, and Blake Hammann.
