NMR Operations during COVID restrictions
We have revised operating procedures in place for use of the NMR facilities at this time.
We also have new protocols for sample submissions to the NMR Service.
Note that some access to the basement NMR laboratory is now possible but remains very restricted due to occupancy limits. Request for access is on a case-by-case basis and is limited to the 5pm-8pm window Mon-Fri at this time- contact NMR staff if you require use of a basement instrument, explaining your need.
Please request experiments through Sample Submission as much as possible at this time.
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.
2019 Introductory lecture: The lecture slides can be found here (Oxford only).
20/4/20: We have a new handout on Diffusion NMR and DOSY: Available from our Resources-NMR Handouts page
