Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory

With three nuclear magnetic resonance instruments, the Brock Department of Chemistry is well equipped for cutting edge research.

Instruments

300 NMR

Bruker Avance AV 300 Digital NMR spectrometer with a 7.05 Tesla Ultrashield magnet. The system is equipped for double resonance and includes a BBFO Z-gradient ATMA probehead which covers the tuning range 15N through 31P and is also 19F capable. The system is equipped for VT. Both NMR systems run in a Microsoft Windows 7 Professional environment using Bruker TOPSPIN 2.1 PL8 software for data acquisition and analysis. A TOPSPIN data processing workstation is also part of the NMR facility in Mackenzie Chown Complex.

400 NMR

Bruker Avance III HD 400 Digital NMR spectrometer with a 9.4 Tesla Ascend Magnet. The system is equipped for double resonance and includes a BBFO Z-gradient ATMA probehead which covers the tuning range 15N through 31P and is also 19F capable. The system is equipped for VT. The 400 system run in a Microsoft Windows 7 Professional environment using Bruker TOPSPIN 3.6 software for data acquisition and analysis. A TOPSPIN data processing workstation is also part of the NMR facility in “Cairns Family” Biosciences Research Complex.

600 NMR

Bruker Avance AV 600 Digital NMR spectrometer with a 14.1 Tesla Ultrashield Plus magnet. The system is equipped for triple resonance and includes a BBO Z-gradient ATMA probehead which covers the tuning range 15N through 31P with proton decoupling, and an inverse triple resonance gradient TXI probe for observation of protons while decoupling 13C and 15N. The system is also capable of solids observation with a broadband CP/MAS probehead. All probes have full VT capability.
