This page lists pertinent information regarding our NMR spectrometers including location, capabilities, and instrument status. The Facility currently has 12 Varian/Agilent instruments located throughout the Chemistry Building and a 900 MHz Bruker Instrument at the Engineering Research Complex. All instruments are available for use by the faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate and undergraduate students. Spectrometer time is reserved online for most instruments and is available in several formats (e.g. long or short blocks). Prior to first time use, new users must obtain training in order to obtain a NMR account. Please contact the NMR staff to schedule training. Scroll down to view all the instruments or use the quick link below to jump to a specific instrument.
