Solution NMR

600 MHz Avance III HD in CBEC 92 -  This is our most versatile instrument in the facility, capable of a large number of NMR experiments ranging from routine to advance multidimentional, multinuclear NMR, water suppression, and variable temperature.  Most experiments can be acquired using automation.    

400 MHz Avance NEO in CBEC 92 – This instrument is a walkup instrument utilizing a SampleJet and a liquid nitrogen cooled probe (Prodigy) enhanced sensitivity and for high sample through-put.

400 MHz Avance III in CBEC 92 - This is a walk-up instrument which utilizes the SampleJet for high sample through-put.

400 MHz DPX in Evans 83 - Currently, we are using this instrument for routine 1H, 13C, and 31P experiments and variable temperature studies.

250 MHz DPX in Evans Lab 86 - Primarily a walk-up instrument equipped with a quarternary probe for detection of X (carbon, phosphorus, and boron) nuclei

Solid-state NMR

Solid-state NMR service is available via collaboration with the NMR Laboratory manager.
