NMR Facility

At present the NMR Facility is equipped with three solution state Spectrometers (AVI 400MHz, AVIII 400MHz and AVIII500MHz) capable of a wide range of NMR experiments and techniques. All 3 spectrometers have BACS60 autosampler, which allows for fully automated analysis of up to 60 samples at a time.

NMR spectroscopy services are also provided for other Schools within the University, other academic institutions and industrial clients.

The NMR Systems are very well specified above and the NMR facility can offer routine 1H, 13C, 19F and 31P spectra run completely in automation. More demanding multi-pulse experiments can be performed following discussion, as required, with our expert experienced staff.

The NMR can also offer dynamic, variable temperature experiments in the range of minus 100degrees centigrade to plus 100 degrees centigrade.
