The Gerken group is preparing and characterizing inorganic fluorine compounds that are structurally interesting and can be used as reagents in fluorine chemistry. Since 19F is a key sensitive NMR nucleus, NMR spectroscopy of solids and solutions is one of the key characterization methods for the Gerken group. Solid-state NMR spectroscopy has been utilized to characterize xenon, iodide, and sulfur fluorides.
