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 one 600 MHz Avance IV NMR spectrometer equipped with a solution-state broad-band TBO probe. The installation of the second NMR, which will be an 800 MHz machine with a solution-state helium-cooled cryo-probe is scheduled for autumn 2021. The third, 700 MHz spectrometer will arrive in spring 2022. All spectrometers will be equipped with solution- and fast-magic-angle-spinning solid-state probes.

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.
