Sample Requirements

  • Sufficient sample amount is desired for reliable NMR analysis.
  • Liquid samples should have a minimum volume of 500 uL in deuterated solvents.
  • The facility provides common deuterated solvents for solid samples.

Data Processing and Delivery

  • Acquired NMR Data will be processed by the facility and sent to the customer electronically, including processed and raw data.
  • Frequent users may request a FTP (file transfer protocol) account for direct data access.
  • There is also a separate computer (Data Processing Station) in the NMR room for users to view and process NMR data.
