Bruker 500 MHz NMR spectrometer for solution state work. A room temperature, broadband observe probe (including 19F) is normally in use for 1D and 2D experiments and variable temperature experiments. Samples are routinely spun in 1D experiments for sharper signals than on a cryoprobe in the BRC and Keck NMR labs, but cryoprobes have significantly higher sensitivity. A 24-slot sample changer and software enable a user to set up the spectrometer to acquire spectra on multiple samples and/or perform multiple experiments on a specific sample. Alternatively, a user can work in the traditional manual mode of operation in order to have maximum control for optimizing parameters for each experiment.
Instrument rules: Spectrometer time may be reserved on the FOM calendar in accordance with the accompanying document below; if no one else needs to use the spectrometer, you may add to your reserved time period and continue using the spectrometer until someone else does want to use it.
Specialized solution state work takes priority on the 500 MHz spectrometer. Please contact Dr. Alemany (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your research needs and to schedule instrument time for variable temperature work or unusually long experiments. In general, plan on scheduling long, unattended blocks of time overnight and on weekends. Variable temperature work will be scheduled with Dr. Alemany so that the needed nitrogen can be ordered. Variable temperature work will normally be scheduled to start no later than 9 AM because several hours will almost certainly be required; variable temperature work will normally be done on a weekday so that Dr. Alemany can be present for specialized instruction or assistance, as needed.
Dr. Alemany reserves the right to schedule the instrument as needed for training, specialized work, use by undergraduate lab classes, maintenance, etc.
