Department Receives NSF Grant to Improve 500 MHz NMR Spectrometer

Posted Dec. 23, 2010


The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has received a $327,753 grant from the National Science Foundation (CHE-1048645) to improve its Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy facilities.  The grant will be used to acquire new digital console electronics and software for the Varian 500 MHz NMR spectrometer, a new 3-channel self-tuning probe for measuring fluorine-decoupled proton and carbon spectra, and a new gradient probe for diffusion studies of Vanadium (III) complexes.  The new hardware will be installed in early 2011 and will further enhance the Department's research strengths in quantum amplification, multiple-quantum NMR, and 3D magnetic resonance imaging.  Professor Tubergen is the project PI; co-PI's include Professors Brasch, Huang, Khitrin, and Kooijman (Biological Sciences).  National Science Foundation
