Solution and solid state NMR

Queen Mary’s medium field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) laboratory is equipped with two Bruker 400 MHz spectrometers. One has an Avance I console (the "AV 400") and one has an Avance III console (the "AV3 400"). They are both equipped with 60 position automatic sample changers and auto-tuning multinuclear (BBO) probes. The AV3 400 also has 19F capability. They operate a 24/7 walk-up service in which users run their own samples using Bruker's IconNMR software.

Queen Mary’s high field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) laboratory is equipped with a Bruker Avance 600 spectrometer. The spectrometer is bookable on Weekdays (Monday - Thursday) using our on-line booking system and then runs a walk-up service similar to the 400 MHz spectrometers Friday - Sunday using IconNMR. The available accessories include:

  • Four channels
  • Z-Gradient
  • An automatic sample changer with capacity for up to 60 samples
  • Variable temperature control from -120oC to 200oC
  • Solution state probes:
    • 5mm inverse/BB autotuning probe with Z-gradient
    • 5mm H/C/N inverse triple resonance probe
    • 5mm 1H/19F dual
    • 5mm BB 28 - 242 MHz (109Ag - 31P)
    • 8mm 13C/1H dual
    • 10mm BB 10 - 51 MHz (191Ir - 169Tm)
  • Solid state capability with the following probes:
    • 2.5mm CP/MAS BB 61 - 242 MHz (15N - 31P) and 19F
    • 4mm MAS BB 92 - 242 MHz (2H - 31P)
    • 4mm CP/MAS BB 61 - 242 MHz (15N - 31P)
    • 7mm CP/MAS BB 28 - 61 MHz (39K - 15N)
  • Software available for processing and analysing NMR data, including:
    • TopSpin – Bruker's standard acquisition and processing suite
    • Aurelia – for analysis of 2-4D NMR datasets
    • Amix - for a wide variety of applications, such as metabolomics, small molecules research and mixture analysis
