We have a new NMR website! Please go there now.
The technical content is nearly identical, but many areas such as Policies are updated. A few areas still being worked on....
A big improvement is the search. Hopefully will be helpful for navigating.
We'll force redirects after a couple weeks, so please switch your links over now. Appreciate any feedback about the new site!
This facility has seven NMR and one ESR spectrometers located in the Paul Bender Chemistry
Instrument Center (CIC). We are still primarily a student-run operation,
but service work is available
to corporate users. Access
is obtained via training
and checkouts, provided by the facility
staff. Detailed Users Guides
are available to assist in the use of all UWChemMRF
NMR facility has a new Avance 400 -- Eos -- for Undergrad Lab support, research training, and walkup-access.!
Avance-400 (Eos) focused on undergrad lab support and research training
1H, 13C, 19F, 31P with SampleJet
Support for all undergrad labs, + Chem636 & 637. Greatly improved access for undergrads, and for other outreach functions. Improved research training and walk-up access.
Avance-400 with SmartProbe and SampleJet
1H, 13C, 19F, 31P, 11B, 29Si, 15N, etc., with high-volume sample changing
The robot is very fast and high-volume, taking ~2.5min per sample
with excellent data quality.
Avance-500 with DCH cryoprobe and SampleXpress
state-of-the-art 13C sensitivity with flexible sample automation
| Carbon exps are >100x faster! Reaction monitoring
via 13C at natural abundance is doable; inadequate can be done at
moderate concentrations; etc.
Avance-500 with Prodigy, SmartProbe, and F/H/C probes plus
state-of-the-art multinuclear, variable temperature, and
|The Prodigy probe is outstanding, providing
superior data for 19F, 29Si, 31P, 13C, 15N, etc. New VT capabilities
with the SmartProbe are also excellent.
Avance-600 with TCI-F cryoprobe
state-of-the-art 1H and 19F capabilities
high power lasers and LED for CIDNP and photochemistry

||We have floating licenses enabling use
of TopSpin 3 from any Windows or Linux computer connected to the
Chemistry or WiscVPN networks. Installation instructions for TopSpin
are posted here.
||We have a site license for
MestreNova 11, which will work on any Windows, MacOSX and Linux workstation.
Installation instructions for MNova are here.
. More technical information about the new equipment is available
- Please Acknowledge our funding in publications: see our Support
page for more information.
- castor.chem.wisc.edu hosts data from our spectrometers. We have switched to SAMBA as a transfer protocol. Instructions to users to install/switch to SAMBA and sftp are here.
- The Bruker-400/500 and Mercury-300 spectrometers are available for use
for all researchers. Undergraduate and corporate research
will particularly benefit from the new capabilities and improvements in ease-of-use.
Iinformation about tubes and caps compatible with the Bruker spectrometers
is provided here.
- Researchers should always check the integrity
of their samples prior to running variable temperature experiments.
This criteria is particularly important for sealed samples to
be run at elevated temperatures, where generated pressures might explode the
sample in the NMR probe. Testing the sealed samples in a water or oil bath
outside the NMR lab is strongly recommended for such situations. Thick-walled
tubes can assist with sample integrity, but researchers should talk to facility
staff prior to using any samples where pressures might rise above 1 atmosphere.
