Bruker Avance III 300 MHz
This instrument has capabilities for solution-state, solid-state, rheo, diffusion, and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). As the instrument configuration frequently changes due to this, please contact Dr. Alexander Goroncy before using this instrument.
Bruker Avance III 400 MHz
This main workhorse NMR instrument is mainly used for solution-state NMR. Please sign up whenever you wish to use this instrument and be considerate to others and do not book longer than necessary. A simple proton NMR spectrum can be acquired within 10 minutes.
Bruker Avance III 600 MHz
This instrument has solution-state and solid-state capabilities. Due to its higher resolution and superior signal to noise as compared to the other instruments, it can be used if sample quantity is an issue, for macromolecules, or for the NMR acquisition of NMR insensitive nuclei. In the interest of other users, it is requested that reservation do not exceed three days at a time. Please contact Dr. Alexander Goroncy if longer periods are necessary.
Please note that Wednesday from 9 am to 12 pm is reserved for routine maintenance.
Unscheduled time defaults to first come first served.
Please run experiments that require a long time (e.g., carbon) over night or over the weekend, and reserve as soon as possible.
Users are responsible for archiving any data that is important to them, Users may store their data on the disk for 30 days. Any data older than 30 days is subject to deletion.
Graduate students, faculty, and postdoctoral associates in the Chemistry Department and appropriate staff may be trained as independent operators of the NMR. New and continuing users should see Dr. Alexander Goroncy for training.
The status of the instruments will be posted in the NMR room (PS 13). It is the operator’s responsibility to keep up to date on any news regarding the instruments.
Be considerate. There are a lot of users on these instruments. If there are any questions, problems, suggestions, or complaints, please feel free to discuss them with Dr. Alexander Goroncy.
