The 800 MHz Bruker Ascend NMR spectrometer is the newest addition to the NMR facility, featuring an Avance III HD console (5 RF channels, 2 receivers), 19F lock accessory, a nitrogen recovery unit, a SampleCase autosampler, and, currently, a TCI (1H/13C/15N/2H) cryoprobe optimized for 1H detection. The final cryoprobe will be a custom-made QCI device (1H/19F/13C/15N/2H — all channels cold) with temperature control over -40 and +80 deg C.
The 800 MHz NMR joins the facility’s three 500 MHz Avance III Bruker NMR spectrometers with a special cryoprobe and a BACS-120 autosampler each, a 300 MHz Bruker NanoBay spectrometer with a BBFO probe, a Bruker HR-MAS kit for 500 MHz frequency, and two Varian/Agilent INOVA spectrometers of 400, and 500 MHz, respectively. This exceptional collection of NMR instruments now covers a wide range of diverse applications from studying complex biomolecules, structure identification of small and large synthetic molecules and natural products, polymers, characterization of a variety of inorganic samples and metal complexes, through metabolomics and mixture analysis in general.
