The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Unit provides researchers with access to a wide range of NMR experiments both under automation or manual mode.
It also advises researchers on the most appropriate experiment to their needs and it trains and instructs researchers in using NMR, what information can be obtained from NMR experiments and how to optimize the instrumental resources available.
The techniques available up to now guarantee access to all kinds of NMR experiments in liquid phase for a wide range of nuclei and in gel phase for the more common nuclei (1H and 13C). The NMR unit has successfully introduced researchers to such uncommon techniques as heteronuclear (mono and bidimensional) experiments, diffusion experiments and kinetic measurements.
The unit staff also organizes training activities which range from training new users in obtaining NMR spectra automatically and how to use NMR processing software (TOPSPIN), to more general courses about the NMR experiments available and the information they can provide.
Bruker Avance 400 Ultrashield NMR spectrometer
Equipped with BBFO Plus (Broadband Observe plus 19F), BBO (Broadband Observe) and SEF (Selective for 19F) probes, all of them with ATM and z-gradients. This instrument also has a BACS-120 auto sampler for 120 samples.
Bruker Avance 500 Ultrashield NMR spectromete
Equipped with BBI (Broadband Inverse) and BBO (Broadband Observe) probes, both of them with ATM and z-gradients. Additionally it has an HR-MAS probe for gel-phase samples and TBO (Triple Broadband Observe) and TXI (1H-31P-103Rh) probes in combination with a third channel. This instrument also has a BACS-60 auto sampler for 60 samples.
Bruker Avance II 400 Ultrashield NMR spectrometer
Equipped with BBFO Plus (Broadband Observe plus 19F) and BBI (Broadband Inverse) probes, both of them with ATM and z-gradients. This instrument also has a BACS-60 auto sampler for 60 samples.
Bruker Avance III 500 Ultrashield Plus NMR spectrometer
