Outline

We develop new methods and technologies of NMR and MS analyses for structural elucidation and characterization of novel organic compounds that are found or synthesized in chemistry and related scientific fields such as chemical biology, metabolomics research, and several organic synthetic studies. We provide diverse research support activity for characterization of organic molecules through maintenance and operation of MS, NMR, and CD facilities for all RIKEN researchers. Our research supporting activities include training on open access machines, technical assistance, data acquisition, and spectral data analysis and interpretation. We collaborate with many research groups, and continue to improve our capability and methodology for organic molecular characterization and structural determination by spectroscopic analysis together with organic synthesis.
