High Resolution Liquids NMR

At the Department of Chemistry, we have ten high resolution NMR spectrometers for research purposes. These spectrometers are operated hands-on by trained students. Please see the inside users web page for information on training and sign-up information.

Contact Darcy Burns for more information.

The solution NMR Labs are in the analytical basement wing of the Lash Miller Labs, in LM14.

The doors to the labs are locked after-hours; keys are available to research groups. Please ask Darcy Burns if you need keys. There is an electronic lock with key code to access the NMR labs.
