Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility

The NMR Facility supports chemists and biochemists by providing access to state-of-the-art high-resolution NMR spectrometers. Currently, we have three NMR spectrometers: a 600 MHz, a 700 MHz, and an 800 MHz NMR. The 600 MHz NMR is dedicated to both solution and solid-state NMR measurements and it is used mainly by organic chemists. The 700 MHz NMR serves the solid-state NMR spectroscopists as it is equipped with four magic-angle-spinning probes including a 0.7 mm probe that is capable of spinning at 111 kHz frequency. The 800 MHz NMR that is equipped with a solution-state helium-cooled cryo-probe helps the protein NMR spectroscopists by providing the highest sensitivity.
In 2023 the NMR machine park will be extended by a solution-state 400 MHz NMR spectrometer.

Services

The NMR Facility provides the following services:

  • Basic and advanced training on solution- and solid-state NMR measurements
  • Support in spectrum acquisition, data processing, and analysis
  • Project-based customization in
    • Sample preparation
    • Pulse sequence implementation
    • Spectral simulations

To use our service, the following steps should be taken:

  • Contact us at nmr@ist.ac.at
  • All users need to participate in compulsory safety training before entering the NMR hall. Basic or advanced user trainings should be taken before the use of any equipment for the first time. The users should succeed in an on-site practical exam before getting access to the equipment of the Facility.
