Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility

NMR Workshop Advanced Techniques and 2D NMR

Thursday August 3 and Friday August 4, 9am to noon each day


 The workshop will briefly cover the basic physical theory behind the advanced NMR experiments but the focus will be on demonstrating the uses of these experiments and practical aspects of experimental set up.  The schedule will consist of a mixture of lectures and of hands-on sessions on the NMR spectrometers where participants will get the opportunity to set up experiments and collect data.

The topics covered include topics covered include:





Pulse field gradients


Shaped Pulses

Selective 1D NOESY



PSYCHE (broad band homonuclear decoupling)


This advanced workshop is available to undergraduate, graduate students and postdocs who have already taken the Introductory NMR Workshop or who have completed the third year Spectroscopic Structure Identification course (59-330/332) (or equivalent) and who have demonstrated sufficient competence to the NMR Facility Manager.   Please share with others in your lab.


Enrolment is free but numbers are limited.


Registration can be done using the link below or at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry-NMR Facility webpage

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

The NMR Facility is located in the Essex Centre of Research Building (CORe), Rm 122.  The Facility now houses 3 300 MHz Bruker Solution NMRs, a 400 MHz Bruker Solid State NMR, a 500 MHz Bruker NMR that is used for both Solution and Solid State experiments and a Bruker ESP 300e Xband EPR in an open concept space.  The Facility also includes a prep lab and a workshop/storage room.The NMR Facility for the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is a departmental resource devoted to application of nuclear magnetic resonance techniques to chemical and biochemical problems including the elucidation of molecular structure and measurement of molecular dynamics, association and other parameters amenable to this technology. This facility is designed to be easy to use for standard experiments for trained users, however, unusual or challenging projects are welcomed by the Facility Manager, please consult me about any possible NMR related projects.  In addition we welcome the opportunity to work with local research groups or industry,  fees for usage are listed under the Rates link.

The other mandate for this facility is to train chemists and biochemists to use the wide range of NMR experiments that can be of aid in their research. In addition to day to day training that occurs in this facility there are also periodic Workshops offered in the practical aspects of implementing experiments and processing data at both a beginner's and at advanced level.

The NMR Facility now uses ther BADGER program for scheduling and enabling the NMR instruments.  Please contact Matt Revington if you want access to the NMR instruments.
