The University NMR Facility was first established as an Inter-Faculty operation with its first spectrometer with a superconducting magnet, in 1982. We specialise in analysis of substances using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.
It is now located within the purpose-built Analytical Centre, housed in the Chemical Sciences Building (F10), and equipped to an international standard with state-of-the art instruments, featuring eight Bruker Instruments magnetic resonance spectrometers and a computer room for off-line data processing and archiving:
A new Avance III - 700 MHz instrument Felix, installed April 2010
A new Avance III - 600 MHz instrument Tesla with auto sampler, upgrade and commissioned in 2009
A new Avance III - 500 MHz instrument Hertz, upgrade and commisioned in 2008
A new Avance III - 400 MHz instrument Gauss, with autosampler, commissioned in 2008;
A new Avance III - 300 MHz instrument Pines, dedicated to solids, upgrade and commissioned in 2009
A new Avance III - 300 MHz instrument Gyro, with a SampleXpress autosampler upgrade and commissioned in 2011
A DPX 300 with an autosampler, one upgrade and commissioned in 2008 Flip
An EMX X-Band Bohr, spectrometer, upgrade and commissioned in 2006
All the spectrometers are fitted for the latest experimental innovations, enabling execution of the most up-to-date experiments in this still rapidly developing area of chemical, biological materials analysis and nano-structural research.
Indications of the range and scope of our collaborative efforts can be found in Publications.
