Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer

Location: Morley Science Room 154

Location: Morley Science Room 154

Model: Bruker Ultrashield 500MHz

Location: Morley Science Room 154

This instrument analyzes the structure of molecules by evaluating the electromagnetic radiation emitted by certain atomic nuclei when they are subjected to their electromagnetic resonance frequency in a strong magnetic field. Our Brüker Avance DRX 500 MHz NMR spectrometer is equipped with a Z-axis gradient unit and a variable temperature controller, and can be operated with either a 5mm broad-band multinuclear (PABBO) probe or a 5mm 1H/13C/15N (TXI) inverse probe.  This instrument allows chemical scientists at Williams to determine the structures of molecules from a wide variety of projects, ranging from natural product total synthesis, polymer synthesis, materials science and catalyst development research projects, natural product isolation studies, and structure determination of small peptides.
