Instruments

The Magnetic Resonance Research Center operates nine different nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers for liquids analysis ranging in magnetic field strength from 7.05 to 18.8 T, corresponding to proton resonance frequencies of 300 to 800 MHz, respectively. All of the spectrometers are multinuclear and a large variety of probes are available. Remote data processing is also available via five workstations maintained by the Center.
