About the Facility
The NMR Facility is a campus-wide resource hosted by the Department of Chemistry. The NMR Facility was the first core research facility to be established at MU and continues to serve researchers from many disciplines. Instrumentation includes a Bruker Avance III 600 MHz Spectrometer (with sample changer), a Bruker Avance III 500 MHz spectrometer (with sample changer), a Bruker AVII+ 300 MHz spectrometer and a DRX 300 MHz (widebore) spectrometer with solid state capability. An 800 MHz instrument was added in early 2008 and is housed in the Schweitzer Hall Addition. The 500 and 600 MHz spectrometers were upgarded in 2014. All spectrometers have multinuclear capability. The NMR Facility and staff are available for research support to investigators who want to use NMR for structural elucidation of molecules and for the study of chemical and biological reactions. Assistance in the design of experiments and spectral analysis is available upon request.
