NMR Facility

Department of Chemistry University of Oxford

NMR Operations following reduced COVID restrictions

We shall retain our new protocols for sample submissions to the NMR Service.

 Contact NMR staff if you require use of a basement instrument, explaining your need, so that appropriate training can be arranged.


The NMR facility housed in the Chemistry Research Laboratory is one of the largest available to research chemists in the UK. It houses thirteen solution-state and two solid-state FT NMR instruments with proton operating frequencies ranging up to 700 MHz, which are capable of running most experiments of interest to the research chemist. The facility supports the full range of chemical sciences research across the department and university including synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology, enzymology, metabolomics, catalysis and materials science.

They are managed by Prof Tim Claridge (Organic/ChemBiol) and Dr Nick Rees (Inorganic) and are operated and maintained by five members of staff in total.
