Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facility
The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry of Concordia University maintains and operates 3 solution NMR spectrometers.
We offer NMR services to both University and external users.
Varian VNMRS-500 MHz
5 mm AutoX DB (Dual Broadband) probe1H-19F/X[15N-31P], with z-PFG, operating with VNMRJ 3.2 software underLINUX Red Hat 5. Automatic tuning for all nuclei by ProTune accessory.
Varian INOVA-300 MHz
Two 5 mm probes - direct SW1H/X[15N-31P] and inverse ID1H/X[15N-31P], with z-PFG, operating with VNMRJ3.2 software under LINUX Red Hat 6.
Bruker FOURIER-300 MHz
Equipped with a 16 position SampleXpress Lite sample changer: 5 mm DUL EasyProbe1H and 13C, with z-PFG, operating with TOPSPIN 3.1 software under Windows 7 Professional.
In addition, for biomolecular NMR, a Varian 800 MHz spectrometer can be used at Quebec/Eastern Canada High FieldNMR Facility.
Service and local manuals
Including most of the routine experiments:
1D NMR: 1H/13C/31P/19F/15N/17O, solvent suppression, 13C-spectra editing: DEPT/APT
2D homonuclear NMR: COSY/TOCSY/ NOESY/ROESY
2D heteronuclear NMR: HSQC/HMQC/HMBC.
A clear solution sample is required for service in 5 mm NMR tube with a volume of around 0.6 mL (a height of at least 4 cm).
Variable temperature control: -80 to +130 °C
We offer NMR services to both University and external users. A service charge will be applied for each use of the NMR facility service, which includes use of the spectrometer or training. Please enquire for more details.
Faculty, post-docs and students who have undergone user training may operate the instruments without direct supervision.
