Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a technique that allows the detection of the nuclei of many elements and provides information about the chemical environment of these nuclei by aligning their spins in an external magnetic field and causing energy transitions by pulses of radio frequency.
Our unit includes five modern instruments varying in magnetic field from 4.7 to 16.4 T, corresponding to proton frequencies of 200 to 700 MHz. We have probes allowing the detection of most useful nuclei at a wide range of temperatures.
In the past year, we have received two new spectrometers:
Our new 500 MHz instrument is dedicated to the study of solids and includes several probes that rotate the sample at the so-called “magic angle”.
Our new 700 MHz instrument is dedicated to state-of-the art high resolution studies, including proteins and is equipped with a high-sensitivity cryoprobe, cooled with liquid helium.
The NMR instruments are found in rooms 0.02 and 0.05 in building 211.
