The University of Oregon Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility provides a diverse array of magnetic resonance research capabilities for routine and advanced analysis of both solutions and solid state samples. The facility is located adjacent to the chemistry research laboratories in Klamath Hall in the Lokey Science Complex and is part of the CAMCOR shared research instrument service center.
The facility is home to five superconducting magnets equipped for walk-up solution state analysis of 1H, 13C, 31P, 19F as well as advanced techniques.
Multinuclear cyroprobes permit the high sensitivity study of virtually any magnetic nucleus, including 2H, 7Li, 11B, 15N, 23Na, 27Al, 29Si, 51V, 59Co, 71Ga, 77Se, 113Cd, 119Sn, 125Te, 195Pt.
The indirect detection capabilities of these probes permit a variety of 2D and 3D techniques for characterization of molecular structure (e.g. COSY, NOESY, HMQC, HMBC, TOCSY, INADEQUATE). In addition diffusion (DOSY) of molecules in solution can measured for X-nuclei as well as 1H or 19F.
Instruments in the facility are available to all qualified academic, research, or commercial users.
Our facility is supported by major instrumentation grants from the National Science Foundation, ONAMI, and Oregon BEST.
