Overview of Services

The CBC NMR laboratory, resides in a two-story atrium of Brown Laboratory with a lab space of 4650 square feet, houses six NMR spectrometers with operating proton frequency ranging from 400 MHz to 850 MHz. The NMR laboratory takes advantage of most recently enabling developments in NMR spectroscopy that have either expanded NMR applications or greatly improved the efficiency of the technique.
The mission of the CBC NMR Laboratory is to provide strong support and excellent service for structural characterization of small molecular and macromolecule-based biomaterial in solution and solid state and to facilitate the research and development of NMR spectroscopy as a premier method for structural analysis of a wide variety of systems in solution and solid states.
Two solution 400 MHz NMR spectrometers, one with an auto-sampler and a cryogenic QNP probe and another with the multinuclear capabilities, are available for routine proton and multinuclear NMR analysis of organic and inorganic materials. Two solution 600 MHz spectrometers, one with a triple-resonance cryogenic probe for biomolecular samples and another with an auto-sampler and enhanced 19F capabilities for expanded NMR applications such as high-resolution magic angle spinning (HRMAS) for semi-solid materials.
The 500 MHz solid-state NMR spectrometer is equipped with 3 probes, including a broadband 4.0 mm HX probe and a 3.2 mm triple-resonance (1H, 13C, and 15N) probe. The 850 MHz spectrometer is hybridized for both solution and solid-state NMR measurements. With the ultra-high magnetic field and a large collection of solution and solid-state NMR probes, the 850 MHz NMR spectrometer covers a broad range of applications from inorganic material, synthetic organic polymeric materials to structure and dynamic studies in structural biology.
In addition to the departmental NMR instrument, four NMR spectrometers with frequencies ranging from 200 to 600 MHz are used and maintained by the following research groups: Polenova, Dybowski, and Rozovsky. Most of these spectrometers are dedicated solid-state NMR instruments.
