Research in the Wasylishen group covers a wide range of applications of solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Over the last few years, we have explored several new avenues of research including:

1. Use of 1H NMR imaging to monitor operating H2/O2 fuel cells.

2. Use of hyper-polarized 129Xe NMR spectroscopy to characterize porous materials.

3. Development of new sensitivity-enhancement NMR experiments to observe half-integer spin quadrupolar nuclei or spin-1/2 nuclei with large shielding anisotropies.

4. Study of "exotic" low-gamma quadrupolar nuclei.

5. Use of quantum chemical calculations to provide insight towards experimental results.
