NMR 400


For Basic NMR instrument training, please fill out the request form here.

The next Basic NMR training session will be Thursday June 8th from 1330-1430.

The Magnetic Resonance Research Center supports Notre Dame research in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and related fields. The Center operates eight different nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers for liquids analysis ranging in magnetic field strength from 7 to 18.8 Tesla.


The 700 and 800 MHz spectrometers are equipped with triple resonance cryoprobes enabling measurements of extremely dilute sample solutions or exceptionally large macromolecules. These spectrometers and the 600 instrument are dedicated mainly to studies of the molecular structures and dynamics of macromolecules, complex carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and proteins. They are fully equipped to allow the development of new multidimensional NMR spectroscopy experiments. Two 400 MHz and two 500 MHz spectrometers are available for structure determinations and dynamics studies of smaller molecules.

Research Support and Training

The Center supports a diverse range of research projects at the University of Notre Dame in chemistry, chemical engineering, bio-chemistry, biophysics, cellular and molecular biology, and related fields, and provides NMR analytical support for academic research groups, institutions and corporations off-campus.

The Center periodically offers seminars to keep users informed about the latest experimental techniques and recent developments in NMR spectroscopy instrumentation.  Postdoctoral associates, faculty, and students are also trained in the operation of the NMR spectrometers in order to be able to perform all needed experiments independently.
