Bruker Avance III HD 400MHz NMR at SR387A

We are fortunate to have received a grant from the National Science Foundation  (NSF) through the Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program for acquisition of a new NMR spectrometer at Cleveland State University (PI: Xue-Long Sun, CHE-1126384, NSF)

The magnet of the NMR spectrometer is a 9.4Tesla superconducting solenoid operating at a nominal proton frequency of 400 MHz.  The magnet is actively shielded to produce a minimal magnetic footprint.  The probe is broad banded with automatic tuning and matching capability and pulsed-field gradient capacity. The 5mm Broadband Observe with gradients probe is most often used in this instrument, allowing direct observation of 1H, 13C, 31P and 19F with a single probe.  The system has Z-axis gradients and is capable of running Variable Temperature experiments. The instrument is equipped with a temperature control accessory for room temperature to 0 oC operation, facilitating long acquisitions and variable temperature capability from -150 oC to +180 oC operation. 

The AVIII 400 MHz NMR spectrometer will meet the needs of analytical, organic, chemical biology, medicinal, and pharmaceutical research and will be used for teaching courses, such as Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, and Pharmaceutical Analysis labs at CSU.
