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 equipment. 

The 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 SampleCase
— state-of-the-art multinuclear, variable temperature, and 19F capabilities

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
