The Department of Chemistry has outstanding nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) facilities provide the user with the ability to perform state-of-the-art experiments. The Department's NMR facility currently houses Bruker spectrometers operating at 600, 500, and 360 MHz. The 600 MHz instrument was purchased in 2004 and the 500 and 360 MHz spectrometers were completely upgraded with new consoles and electronics at the same time. Support for these upgrades was provided by the National Science Foundation (MRI and CCLI grants) and UA.
The NMR faciliy's instruments are currently capable of observing all magnetic nuclei between 103Rh and 1H. Current applications involve the more common 1H, 2H, 13C, 15N, 17O, 19F and 31P nuclides as well as studies of 11B, 23Na, 27Al, 29Si, 75As, 77Se, 125Te and 205Tl nuclides. The instruments are configured to employ pulse-sequences for multi-dimensional NMR experiments. The facility is maintained by a full-time Ph.D. spectroscopist, Dr. Ken Belmore, who is available for consultation and assistance.
