My research group is a part of the Department of Chemistry, IIT Jodhpur. We use the Bruker 500 MHz WB NMR instrument available as a central facility at the Institute. We are interested mainly in Solution and Solid State NMR as well as NQR. At present our main focus is to decipher intermolecular interactions in solution as a basis of molecular recognition important for biological processes. This gives us a chance to look at the interfaces of Chemistry and Biology. We are also aiming to understand potential molecular dynamics present in the solid state by employing both solid state NMR as well as NQR. A combination of complementary biophysical techniques viz., Fluorescence Spectroscopy, FTIR, UV-VIS, Circular Dichroism, SEM are also implemented in our research to strengthen our NMR understanding of a particular system under investigation.
