PhD student Andreas Boeg has left HYPERMAG for a short-term research mission at Texas A&M University.

Andreas Boeg will be staying at the Chemistry Department of Texas Agriculture and Engineering University from 1 March to approximately 31 July. He will join the group of Associate Professor Christian Hilty, which is focused on developing and applying magnetic resonance techniques for the investigation of rapid processes and molecular dynamics. 

Andreas is working on direct detection of chemical intermediates, aiming to establish Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Nuclear Magnetic Resonance as a new analytical tool for inorganic and catalytic chemistry.

Christian Hilty's group is one of the few groups with a dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarization setup similar to that of HYPERMAG. It has the added benefit of a fast transfer system which will be especially useful for Andreas' study of chemical reactions of substrates with short T1s. The focus of his stay will be on the Grubbs-Hoveyda Metathesis catalysts, which the Hilty group is currently investigating.
