MIMM: Monitoring

Thanks to the team developments in fast multi-dimensional NMR, this recent research axis has been initiated in 2015 and is aiming at monitoring complex (bio)chemical transformations in real time. Reacting media are complex, out-of-equilibrium mixtures that require tailored pulse sequences compatible with flow analysis. Such methods are developed both at high field and on benchtop spectrometers.

At high-field, a unique experimental setting associating a flow tube with a micro-imaging equipment has recently been installed.

Two benchtop spectrometers are also equipped with a flow system. Targeted applications include the monitoring and control of chemical flow syntheses through a self-optimizing reactor, in collaboration with the CORAIL team. The monitoring of bioprocesses such as microalgae cultivations and enzymatically induced food processes is also explored.
