Instrumentation

The Facility currently houses five spectrometers. These instruments are listed below:

  • Bruker Avance III UltraStabilized 800 MHz Spectrometer - This system is housed in Schweitzer Hall. It has the latest and most advanced Ultra-Shield-Plus magnet with four radiofrequency (rf) channels, an ATM (automatic match and tuning) and a TCI (1H/13C/15N) probe with cryo-chilled 1H and 13C preamplifiers.

  • Bruker Avance III 600 MHz Spectrometer - This newly upgraded spectrometer is housed in 2 Chemistry Bldg. It is equipped with four rf channels, an ATM and a TCI probe with cryo-chilled 1H and 13C preamplifiers. Auto sample changer with a chiller allows random access to up to 24 samples.

  • Bruker Avance III 500 MHz Spectrometer - The newly upgraded spectrometer is housed in 6 Chemistry Bldg. It is equipped with three rf channels, an ATM and a TCI probe with cryo-chilled 1H and 13C preamplifiers. Auto sample changer allows random access to up to 24 samples.

  • Bruker DRX 300MHz Wide-bore Spectrometer - The spectrometer is housed in 32 Chemistry Bldg. It is equipped with two rf channels, a 5-mm BB probe for routine operation (e.g., for 31P observation) and a 7mm CP-MAS probe for solid state samples.

  • • Bruker AVII+ 300MHz Spectrometer - The spectrometer is housed in 32 Chemistry Bldg. It is equipped with two rf channels and a 5-mm BBFO probe with a Z-gradient coil and ATM. The instrument is mostly used for multinuclear observations (e.g., for 19F, 11B).
