Users must be trained and familiar with operation of these spectrometers. Please minimize temperature fluctuation of the magnets as the magnetic field strength is sensitive to it due to their construction, So, do not let the sun shine on them or move them around. The magnetic's themselves are unlikely to cause interference with magnetic objects unless they are placed inside the magnets.
As considerable resources are needed to run this facility, it is expected that every user contributes to the facility and promotes the facility as much as possible. A fee system has been implemented, that is competitive within this geographic area. A link to pay the fees is here.
Furthermore, it is appreciated if the users mention the facility in print and in other forms of publications (seminars, talks).
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.
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. Sign up for time on the 400 MHz instrument here.
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. To reserve time, please contact Alexander Goroncy.
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.
