Multinuclear NMR in support of synthetic and materials chemistry at UoS

Project: Standard

Project Details


This grant funded the purchase of a Bruker Avance II 400 MHz NMR spectrometer equipped with a robotic sample changer and a probe capable of observing nuclei from 1H to 109Ag. This instrument supports around 150 synthetic chemists in the School of Chemistry and BSRC and almost every research output from these groups will utilise data acruired using this spectrometer

Layman's description

Chemists use NMR spectroscopy much in the same way that doctors us Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), except chemists are deducing the structure of molecules not people. This instrument underpins the synthetic chemistry effort at St Andrews, giving researchers access to state-of-the-art experiments. The instrument is fully automated meaning that it can run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week producing over 20000 data sets in a year.
