Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is the most powerful method for structure elucidation. More than 200 users, students and faculty, mainly from the Chemistry Department but also from around the campus, and researchers from industry use the instruments in our facility to check the outcome of reactions or characterize compounds. Many synthetic chemists use our facility on a daily basis. We train users in basic operation as well as in advanced experiments, and offer support for research projects. We also give laboratory classes for undergraduate courses.
During the current Covid-19 situation, users are not allowed in the NMR rooms. Anyone with a UF email address can submit samples to be run on automation. No need to be trained, but if you want to get some NMR background, or need help with experiment setup or data interpretation, contact Ion. Leave your samples in the tray in front of CLB110, then fill the Sample Submission Form within 10 minutes. The current schedule of the runs is M-F: 1000, 1300, 1600, 1900 and 2200, Sat. 1300 and 1600, and Sun 1300. After your samples are run, you can find your data on the b600 in the directory /opt/topspin3.5pl7/B600_data/your_username. Use WinSCP to transfer the data to your computer and process them with any of these pieces of software. I recommend Mnova. Contact me if you want an Mnova training.
