The Facility & Equipment
Our facility spans three locations, supporting a total of five NMR spectrometers and one EPR spectrometer
Facility staff provide training to operate the instruments, process data, and prepare samples. We hold two types of regular training: Level1 covers use of the autosampler-equipped spectrometers, and Level2 covers manual operation of the other spectrometers. Under COVID, all training is conducted one-one-one with the facility manager, and scheduling is arranged on an individual basis. Training for specific techniques (such as “variable temperature” operation) is available by arrangement with the facility manager.
“I reserve instrument time for an extended period, then use it to manually run experiments that require extra attention and time. I may leave it to run unattended for several hours, perhaps at high or low temperature.”
Exciting news! The long-anticipated upgrade to the 500-2 computer is here! Main differences Two monitors (see photo) Log in with your "new" username/password (the ones provided as part of reapplication) CentOS 7 operating system Logging in and out is slightly...
The new 400-2 is ready for use! With this upgrade, the spectrometer has transformed into an automated high-throughput engine for routine data acquisition. “Routine” now includes a variety of standard 2D experiments, plus 1D experiments for a growing assortment of NMR-active nuclei.
Major events took place in Week 1 of reopening, including a number of hardware and software upgrades to NMR systems. For Week 2, expect to continue using 400-1 for routine work. Other systems are actively being configured and upgraded in various ways, so please be patient.
