Penn Chemistry NMR Facility (Penn)

Directors: Furst, George, Ph.D.; Gu, Jun, Ph.D.

Summary:

Penn Chemistry NMR Facility provides researchers in the Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering department access to state-of-the-art instrumentation for high resolution NMR spectroscopy. The Facility provides users extensive training to use spectrometers without supervision and expert advice/consultation on advanced applications of NMR spectroscopy to solve research problems.

At present, the Facility operates ten high resolution NMR spectrometers (300-600 MHz) of varying capabilities located in the Chemistry building at the corner of 34th and Spruce street, Philadelphia, PA."

"Penn Chemistry NMR Facility provides limited solution NMR services (data acquisition and spectrum/structure analysis) to other departments/centers of University of Pennsylvania based on hourly charges. However, these services will be limited to the availability of instrument time and personnel.

NMR Facility accepts service samples from outside academic and industrial customers based on per hour charges.

Services

  • Consultation service for NMR experimental design ( Support service )

    The NMR Facility provides consultation about the design of NMR experiments.

  • NMR spectrometer access ( Access service )

    Trained users can use facility spectrometers independently.

  • NMR spectrometer training ( Training service )

    "Penn Chemistry NMR Facility offers a comprehensive training program for new eligible users so that they can use facility spectrometers independently.

    We strongly encourage users NOT to attend the training program if the research requirement does not involve extensive use of NMR analysis. This training program is a hands-on training of use of our Facility spectrometers, and we do not cover any NMR theories during the course of the training. Prior knowledge of basic principles of NMR spectroscopy is necessary for this training."

  • NMR spectroscopy service ( Material analysis service )

    Users with few samples for NMR spectroscopy can have their spectra collected by one of the facility staff.
