We use and develop NMR methods for the structural elucidation of organic and organometallic compounds, either as end products of a synthesis, or as intermediate species involved in the reaction mechanism of a given synthetic transformation. We apply a multinuclear approach including conventional and non-conventional nuclei. Common key points to most of our NMR work is the preparation of the NMR samples under inert atmosphere generally at temperatures below -70 ºC and the acquisition of NMR spectra cooling down to ca. the freezing point of the sample on a three channel spectrometer equipped with a triple probe 1H,31P,BB.
