Penn Chemistry: NMR Facility

Page header image


The NMR Facility consists of ten Bruker superconducting spectrometers ranging in field strength from 7 to 14.1 telsa (300-600MHZ). We have six 500Mhz spectrometers configured for a wide range of nuclei with consoles varying fro DMX,DRX, AVII,to AVIII and from two to four channels. Special probes included are a HR MAS probe and a LC inverse broadband probe. Lower field spectrometers consists of DMX 300,360, and 400 two –channel machines running either four nuclei (QNP ) probes or broadband direct or inverse detection probes. The highest field machines are a 4-channel DRX 600 and a DRX 500 running inverse proton/carbon/nitrogen probes for biological samples. NIH funding has recently been received to replaced the oldest 500Mhz consoles with AVII and AVIII consoles and add a Cold (Cryogenic) 5mm DCH probe (500MHz) for the highest sensitivity Carbon-13 experiments.


The NMR Facility is staffed by Dr. George Furst (Associate Director, Technical Facilities) and Dr. Jun Gu (Associate NMR Facility Manager).
