NMR Service

If you have already decided that you wish to have NMR service, then there are many options how much we can be involved in your project. Many frequent users prefer to do a lot of the steps (sample preparation according to the guidelines shown here) by themselves (NMR data acquisition, NMR data processing, NMR analysis, presentation of the results), but there are also other users, often the infrequent or off-campus users), that prefer the NMR staff to be involved in several or all steps. We are happy to assist you in any way we can.


For those potential users, who are unsure yet whether NMR can be of benefit for them, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.

NMR sample submission guidelines

It is possible to submit samples in solid, liquid, or gaseous form. Most samples will be measured in liquid form in specially made NMR tubes. We can prepare the sample to NMR specifications if you would like us to do it. Usually, a certain percentage of deuterated solvents are necessary that may not be readily available for everybody.

1. The sample size should usually be a few mg, either in solid form or in liquid form. For 13C or 32P measurements, a little more (~20mg) is better as these nuclei have less sensitivity.

2. Please personally deliver or have a mail service deliver the samples to the NMR laboratory; the address is here. Make sure that the samples are sufficiently secure that they do not pose a hazard to anybody, including hazards from broken glass! Be especially careful if there is a possibility that personell other than knowledgeable researchers transport the samples or may have opportunities to get in contact with them. For transport, 3 (three) layers of packaging are requested, e.g., sample is in small vials with the top secured with parafilm, in a sealable bag such as a Ziploc bag, in a box.


Most routine samples can be measured on the day they are received, if it is requested that the NMR staff should be involved. We can also process, analyze and sent you the result in PDF-format by email on the same day!


We are looking forward to working with you!
