The Soft Matter Spectroscopy Laboratory (SMS LAB) is a research group at the Dipartimento di Chimica e Chimica Industriale of the University of Pisa.
The main research activities are related to the chemical physical study of liquid crystals (LCs) and liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) by means of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) in order to understand the origin of their peculiar properties at a molecular level.
In the recent years, we are working in the field of chemical-physical characterization of iron oxide nanoparticles to be used as contrast agents in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Our expertises include the study of food and agricultural products, such as olive oil, honey and wine, by spectroscopic methods, in particular front-face fluorescence, UV-vis absorption and NMR tecniques.
