NMR Core Facility

 

Important Notice: COVID-19

Frick Chemistry Laboratory has temporarily halted research operations due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Frick Chemistry’s core facilities, including NMR, mass spec, biophysics, small instrument, X-ray, small molecule screening and laser are currently shutdown until further notice.

Any updates on the situation will be communicated promptly through iLab and departmental emails. 

 

Welcome to the Princeton NMR Core Facility!

The Department of Chemistry houses a world-class nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) facility with outstanding instrumental power and experimental capabilities.

  

Facility Use

To request training, consultation, and/or assisted services, please contact the core director.  The NMR Core Facility does not currently accept reservations via iLab, this page is for informational purposes only.

 

About the Facility

The NMR Core Facility is available 24/7 to fully trained and authorized users.

Staff assisted servicse are available Monday - Friday from 9am-5pm.

 

Instrumentation Available

  • A800 - Avance III 800MHz

All proton detected experiments, triple resonance (1H/13C/15N) experiments, 2H detection and still pretty good for 13C detection.

  • A500 - Avance III 500MHz

1H(also for paramagnetic samples), 19F, 31P, 11B and, exotic heteronuclei

  •  A1 - Avance III 500MHz

All proton detected experiments, triple resonance (1H/13C/15N) experiments, 2H detection
and still pretty good for 13C detection.

  • A2 - Avance III 500MHz

Direct13C detection, quite good for 1H, too, 2H detection.

  • A3 - Avance III 500MHz

Unique for 15N and 31P, really good for the rest of the nuclei as well.

  • NB300 - NanoBay 300MHz

1H(also for paramagnetic samples), 19F, 31P, 11B and, exotic heteronuclei

  • A400 - NanoBay 400MHz

Prodigy nitrogen-cooled cryoprobe, competitive for all heteronuclei from -40OC to +150OC
