The chemistry department operates a world-class Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility in a spacious and very transparent setting that is functionally designed to house the largest magnets available on the market today.
The collection of seven current NMR spectrometers includes three top-of-the-line Bruker 500 MHz instruments with special cryoprobe and large capacity autosampler each, primarily designed for high-efficiency small molecule studies.
A 300 MHz machine is a workhorse for 19F-NMR and other simpler applications, while three additional Varian spectrometers (400, 500 and 600 MHz) with room temperature probes provide immediate access to various heteronuclei and wider temperature range.
The INOVA-600 also has an added capillary probe with robotic liquid handler from Protasis/MRM for microsample analysis.
The NMR Facility also offers access to a variety of sophisticated software tools from Mestrelab Research/MNova, Modgraph, Bio-Rad/KnowItAllU, ACD Labs, Umetrics, Chenomx and more.
