The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility consists of four fully multinuclear Fourier transform (FT) NMR Spectrometers.  They each have capabilities for advanced single- and multi-dimensional NMR studies.  The Facility also includes a Bruker EMXplus EPR Spectrometer.


Bruker Avance III-HD 300 MHz

The facility's primary walk-up instrument is configured for routine ¹H, ¹³C, ¹9F, ³¹P and ¹¹B  observe.  It is equipped with an auto-tuning probe that allows full broadband operation. The system has a 24 sample auto-changer (SampleCase™) for fully automated analysis.  


Bruker Avance III-HD 400A MHz

A complement to the 300MHz system, with longer time blocks which allow users to run more advanced experiments.  This system has a 16 sample auto-changer (SampleXpress Lite™) for automated analysis.  It is also equipped with an auto-tuning probe that allows running of various X-nuclei under automation.  System also has a Doty DI 3mm MAS probe for solid-state analysis.


Bruker Avance III-HD 400B MHz

This system features a Broadband Prodigy™ Cryoprobe that offers very high sensitivity.  60 sample auto-changer (SampleXpress™) and auto-tuning capabilities allow for full automation.  


Bruker Avance III-HD 500 MHz

This system's console is equipped with three RF - channels and can perform both liquid and solid-state NMR experiments.  For liquids the default configuration is a TCI triple resonance (H/C/N) Prodigy™ Cryoprobe.  A 60 sample auto-changer (SampleXpress™) is  available for liquids experiments.  Conventional broadband probes are available for both 5 mm and 10 mm samples.  MAS solid-state probe options include 1.9 mm, 4 mm double resonance and a 1.6 mm triple resonance.  Also available is a 3 mm ²H static probe.  


Bruker EMXplus  EPR  

X-Band EPR with high sensitivity (HS) cavity.  System includes Oxford ESR900 cryostat for both liquid Helium and Nitrogen Low temerature experiments.
