Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy (NMR) is a powerful technique that can provide information on molecular structure and dynamics at the atomic level. It has been widely used in chemistry, polymer and biology. The NMR facility at the College of Staten Island has two Varian high-field multinuclear spectrometers, Inova 600 and a 300 wide-bore. The Inova 300 is configured with a 5mm 2RF channel PFG probe tuned to 1H, 13C, 31P and other X-nuclei. It also can be configured with varian 7mm CP/MAS probe or DOTY XC-5 probe for solid materials investigation. The Inova 600 is usually configured with 5mm HCN cryoprobe in order to investigate structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules.
NMR Facility Rules
Before running the instruments, NMR users must finish operational training section. Unauthorized users are not allowed to use the instruments. All users have to schedule the instrumentation time online. Any time unassigned can be freely booked by NMR users on a first-come, first-served basis. If there’s any problem, please contact with Dr. Jianqin Zhuang (6S-211, X3809) or Dr. Arshava Boris (6S-222, X4073)
