Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy

Bruker Ultra-shield-plus 400 MHz NMR

Vertical wide bore (89mm) triple resonance solid state spectrometer with magic angle spinning, 3D-imaging, diffusion and rheology probes.

We can carry out multi dimensional NMR experiments on a wide range of NMR active nuclei to determine chemical structure, inter nuclear distances, orientation, dynamics and morphology. The field gradients that the equipment has enable 3D imaging with resolutions down to 10 mm. We also have high powered field gradients with which it is possible to measure diffusion coefficients down to 10-12 m2s-1. The rheology probe can measure flow velocities in cone and plate and couette cell geometries to an accuracy of 0.1 mm/s.

Stelar SMARtracer Fast-field Cycling NMR

Fast-field cycling NMR, capable of measuring NMR dispersion (NMRD) profiles from 10MHz to 10kHz from room temperature to 120°C.

Magritek Spinsolve 43 Carbon

  • 1H, 19F and 13C experiments (using Standard 5 mm NMR tubes)
  • 2D COSY and homonuclear j-resolved
  • T1 and T2 relaxation experiments

You are warmly invited to make use of this equipment. We will supply support and guidance in carrying out the measurements and even in deciding which techniques will provide useful information for your systems. If more information is required about use of the NMR lab then please contact Dr Dan Baker for details.
