Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility (NMR)
The NMR Facility of the Utah State University is located in the basement of Maeser Laboratory (room 060). It is equipped with two high-field multinuclear spectrometers, The Bruker AvanceIII HD Ascend-500 (proton at 500 MHz) and a JEOL ECX-300 (proton at 300 MHz).
The JEOL ECX 300 MHz system was installed in 2006 and is equipped with a broadband 5mm solution probe. Bruker Ascend 500 MHz spectrometer was installed in July 2015. It is equipped with a broadband and an inverse triple-resonance (H,C, N) 5mm solution probes, and a 24-sample automated sample changer. Both systems are fully capable of running NMR experiments at variable temperatures (VT).
Bruker Advance III HD Ascend-500
The Bruker AvanceIII HD Ascend-500 is currently configured with a 5mm Bruker BBFO SmartProbe that can be tuned for observation of a broad range of nuclei (19F, 31P-15N), and a 5mm Bruker inverse TXI PROBE for 1H observation and 13C/15N decoupling used for biological NMR studies. Both NMR probes are equipped with automated tuning & matching (ATM) and variable temperature (VT) capabilities. A 24-sample changer is also installed for automated NMR operation.
The JEOL ECX-300 is equipped with pulse field gradients and autotune. It is highly automated and can be easily set up for a variety of multinuclear 1 and 2-dimensional experiments.
