Welcome to the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Facility, University of Colordao Boulder

The NMR facility at CU Boulder serves the research needs of the entire campus community as well as outside research entities, both public and private, who are not affiliated with the University of Colorado - Boulder. This facility maintains a variety of state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers at a variety of magnetic fields to support the wide variety of research needs of the inside and outside users. The NMR spectrometers available for hands-on use are located in Room 02 in the Cristol Chemistry Building (directly beneath the main Chemistry & Biochemistry Dept. Offices). Currently it houses 5 NMR spectrometers with unique and complementary NMR spsctroscopy capabilities  in Cristol Chemistry and Ekley Buildings.

  • Bruker Avance-III 300 NMR Spectrometer (7.05 T)  
  • Bruker Avance-III 300 NMR Spectrometer (7.05 T)Bruker 300 MHz
  • Varian INOVA 400 NMR Spectrometer (9.39T) 
  • Varian INOVA 500 NMR Spectrometer (11.74 T)
  • Varian INOVA 500 NMR Spectrometer (11.74 T)

This facility provides a number of NMR services to support research, education and training across the region.We offer hands-on training for frequent inside and outside users, consultation on experimental design, data processing, and analysis. NMR samples can be submitted for analysis (solid and solution NMR). The NMR facility has three workstations to assist in NMR data processing and analysis with softwares such as Mestrenova, ACD Labs and NUTS. We have a UCB-NMR site-license for Mestrenova for NMR data processing, and this software runs on Mac, Windows, or LINUX.
