Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Core Facility

Overview

The nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) facility in School of Biological Sciences (SBS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is equipped with three solution state NMR spectrometers ranging from 400 MHz to 700 MHz and physically located in the NMR Room (SBS-B1n-03), situated at the basement level one of the SBS building. The NMR facility serves NTU research community and external research institutes with collaborations. Requests from other organizations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. After appropriate training, users are granted to perform their own experiments. The NMR instruments are accessible 24 hours per day, year-round.

The specifications of the three solution state NMR spectrometers from Bruker are as below:
