  • High Field NMR Website Image

    The High Field NMR facility provides access to state-of-the art NMR spectroscopy. This includes access to five high field NMR spectrometers, modern high-end solution and solids probes, pulse sequences, sample preparation strategies, and experimental know how, to perform the most up-to-date NMR experiments. The facility is capable of solution and solid-state biomolecular NMR, materials and polymer characterization, and pharmaceutical investigations. The facility provides access and training on the NMR instruments and varying degrees of staff support for novice through experienced users.

    Key Resources
    • Bio-Solution: Available at 800, 700, and 600 MHz, potential experiments include protein dynamics and structure elucidation and protein-ligand binding.
    • Bio-Solids: On the 800 and 600 MHz spectrometers, fast magic-angle-spinning (MAS) probes allow for solution-like investigations of membrane proteins, aggregates, and large complexes.
    • Materials: In addition to the 800 and 600 MHz NMRs, a dedicated 400 MHz instrument is available for work on solid materials such as concrete, polymers, catalysts, and batteries.
    • Service: Various levels of support are available, ranging from access only, to complete data acquisition and analysis.
