NMR Spectroscopy

Services

The NMR facility in the Department of Chemistry is equipped with five instruments at 400MHz (4) and 500MHz (1), capable of performing a range of measurements, including:

  • standard 1H and 13C measurements
  • multinuclear NMR (e.g. 2H, 11B, 19F, 29Si, 31P etc.)
  • variable temperature (above and below ambient)
  • 2D NMR (e.g. HSQC, HMBC, DOSY, etc.)
  • routine solid state NMR 

We provide expert NMR services to both internal (Chemistry and other UoS Departments) users, as well as external clients (other Universities, commercial customers).
