Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility

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, a Bruker ARX-400 (proton at 400 MHz) system with a Bruker 52-mm-bore magnet, and a JEOL ECX-300 (proton at 300 MHz) with an Oxford 54-mm-bore magnet.


The Bruker ARX-400 is usually configured with a 5 mm broadband probe which can be tuned for observation of variable nuclei. This spectrometer can also be equipped with a high sensitivity inverse-detection probe.

The Jeol ECX-300 , equipped with pulse field gradients and autotune, is highly automated and can be easily set up for a variety of multinuclear 1 and 2-dimensional experiments.


These instruments are available for use by USU researchers and students at new lower rates with discounts available for extended data collection periods (nights and weekends). Researchers who wish to operate the instruments themselves will be trained by the Facility. The Facility Manager can also acquire and process spectra as a service, for an additional charge. The NMR Facility can also accommodate users from the private sector.
All reservations are made through the Faces System (maintained by the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center at the University of Georgia). You will be given username and password that will allow you to reserve time on our instruments [our Groupname is "USU_NMR"].
