Bruker Avance III 600 MHz NMR

The Bruker Avance III 600 is a three channel system with Z-axis gradients that is capable of performing experiments on both solids and solutions. It is equipped with three probes which cover a wide range of experiments. A variety of preamplifiers are available for this instrument, including ones dedicated to 1H, 2H, 19F, and two broadband (one is used mainly for solid NMR and the other one for solution NMR). The 600 MHz is mainly used for macromolecules or if more resolution (overlapping resonances) or more sensitivity (limited sample quantity) is desired. Many long-term experiments are performed on the 600 MHz NMR spectrometer. In particular, 13C-NMR and multi-dimensional NMR (more than one dimension) are good candidates. It is also available as an "overflow" valve if the 400 MHz is booked out.

It is possible to do time reservations using the NMR scheduler.

However, as some experiments need a long time to acquire and need special setup, it may be a good idea to double-check with Dr. Alexander Goroncy before reserving time not on the same day (e.g., days in the future like tomorrow, next week).

The magnet is shown below.
