The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Center is located in the Temple building. The facility has three NMR spectrometers, Varian Inova-400 MHz, Varian Mercury-300 MHz and Bruker AVANCEIII 600 MHz. Three high-performance Linux OS workstations are available for data analysis. The NMR facility serves a large community of users within the Department of Chemistry, other on-campus departments and industrial companies. The spectrometers operate on a 24/7 basis, with fully open access. After preliminary operational training, users are granted permission to perform experiments on their own. The investigator should be familiar with the advantages of each instrument in order to make intelligent choices about the most appropriate instrument to use.
The user who has submitted a User Authorization and Request for NMR Training form [PDF] and has been trained by the director of the facility may reserve time from the Schedule page. You will need an active account so that you can log on to a spectrometer. An account is set up for each research group in the spectrometers. Please read NMR Policies [PDF] for more information.
For those who wish to use the facility but do not have an account or have not been instructed in the use of the equipments, an account and free training sessions may be arranged by contacting the facility director, Dr. Yun Qu, at (804) 828-1943 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
