The PC2 Platform is constituted by a large park of instruments including: nuclear magnetic resonance (both liquid and solid state) spectrometers, single-crystal and powder X-ray diffractiometers, instruments for the analysis of the textural properties (N2 physisorption, mercury porosimetry, …) and for the chemical composition (combustion chemical analysis, ICP, …) as well as separation techniques (chromatography, centrifugation…).

The combination of these techniques together with the presence of 2 technicians full time dedicated to the analysis of the samples and highly qualified researchers for the development of advanced applications represent a strategic feature of this platform. Among these characterization techniques solid state NMR and X-ray diffraction emerged as advanced tools for characterization.

The platform is active in collaboration with academic teams, both at a national and international level. It also has a tradition of fruitful collaborations with industrial partners, especially in the fields of materials sciences and with the food and pharmacological industries.


PC² is has a wide expertise involving all the equipment, together with the technical and scientific expertise available on the platform (analysis and characterization, nuclear magnetic resonance, polymorphism and crystallography).
