Solid-State NMR and Modeling in Materials Science:

(1) New solid-state NMR methodolgy: Engineering of advanced NMR techniques encompassing both spins-1/2 and half-integer quadrupolar spins--most methods utilize various aspects of dipolar interactions (homo- as well as heteronuclear) to establish site proximities/connectivities and to estimate inter-nuclear distances and molecular geometries; development of efficient numerical protocols for simulating NMR experiments.

(2) Structural studies of crystalline and amorphous materials (encompassing glasses, cements, porous materials, ceramics, minerals) by combining three powerful techniques: solid-state NMR spectroscopy, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Our recent work is focussed on establishing structure-composition-property relationships of disordered materials:

* developing new rare-earth-based aluminosilicate glasses, and establishing composition-property trends by utilizing solid-state NMR experiments and computer modeling 

* using structure-based approaches to rationalize bioactivity-composition relationships of bioactive glasses (phosphosilicates; borophosphosilicates)

* quantification and structural characterization of bone-mineral-mimicking calcium phosphates that form from bioactive glasses exposed to simulated body fluids (SBF)

* studies of bone mineral and calcium phosphates involved in biomineralization

* structural studies of bioactive Ca-phosphate cements involving organic additives
