Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) @ Dublin City University (DCU)

Institution Dublin City University (DCU)
County Dublin
Technique Category Spectroscopy
Technique Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR)

Basic Capabilities

Liquid State High Field NMR Spectroscopy. The Spectrometer is capable of carrying out NMR spectroscopy on liquid samples in 5mm tunes (0.6ml volume), 1.7mm tubes (0.06ml volume) and solid samples.


Equipment Make 600MHz Avance III Bruker NMR spectrometer
Equipment Model 600MHz Avance III Bruker NMR spectrometer


Advantage of Technique/Equipment The high field strength of the magnet and recent construction of the instrument and associated probes leads to a significant increase in S/N and resolution over other NMR spectrometers. Liquid samples can be automated and analysed quickly
Limitations of Technique/Equipment Setup of solid state samples can be time consuming.

Other Details

Containment Liquid samples must be dissolved in deuterated solvents which are more toxic than their non-deuterated equivalents. Other risks stem from the samples themselves, however once samples tubes are made up correctly they are generally secure when handled properly
Turnaround Time Sample Dependent
Report yes
Interpretation yes
Data on Analyst Experienced staff member/Technician
Indicative Price Liquid samples: Initial testing fee of 20 euro plus 20 euro per hour of instrument time per sample.
