Professor Francis Taulelle (+)
Expert in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
Professor Francis Taulelle is another such authority. He started his research career after having studied at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Cachan and Orsay University in France. As a CNRS Researcher, he specialized in investigating crystallization and crystal structure of materials by using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy. He is the founder of the NMR crystallography methodology and developed specific NMR instrumentation for monitoring in-situ formation of crystals with pores.
He has been working in a variety of laboratories in France, from Paris, Orléans and Strasbourg to Versailles, setting up NMR facilities. He has published more than 300 scientific articles which have been cited 11,300 times. He contributed to an NMR start-up company for providing NMR characterization of pharmaceutical substances and many sorts of inorganic materials.
Until his dead, he was CNRS research director emeritus, professor at KU Leuven, physicalchemist of materials and scientific advisor of the NMR center.
