Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the primary analytical technique used to elucidate the structure of inorganic and organic molecules. In the Department of Chemistry, liquid-state and solid-state NMR spectra are acquired using one of the four NMR spectrometers housed in the J.B. Stothers NMR facility. For non-Western researchers, NMR spectra can be acquired and analyzed by NMR facility staff.
The JB Stothers NMR facility utilizes liquid-state and solid-state NMR spectroscopy to elucidate the structure and dynamics of small molecules, polymers and peptides. Please see About the Facility for more information.
After receiving hands-on training, researchers can acquire their own NMR spectra on any of the facility's four NMR spectrometers. Please see Facility Use for more information.
NMR spectra can be acquired and analyzed for Western, or non-Western, personnel by NMR facility staff. Please see NMR Service for more information.
