NMR SPECTROSCOPY FACILITY
The Facility serves mostly undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers in the Chemistry and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Departments. The research groups generally assign one or more group operator(s) the responsibility of disseminating Facility information (newsletter, notices, application notes, etc.) to other members of the group. G.O.'s also assist group members with instrument operation as needed. After appropriate training, users conduct their own NMR experiments. The NMR instruments are accessible to trained users 24 hours per day, year-round.
The nuclei of interest to most users are 1H and 13C, followed by 31P, 2H and 19F. A significant number of users study other nuclei as well; those include 29Si, 11B, 17O, 119Sn, 195Pt and 51V. The NMR experiments conducted by the users range from relatively simple one-dimensional (1D) direct-observe experiments (for 1H, 13C, 31P and 19F) to more elaborate two-dimensional (2D) experiments such as COSY, NOESY, HMQC/HSQC and HMBC, as well as diffusion and dynamics NMR experiments.
