Flinders NMR Facility

The Flinders NMR Facility provides nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for academic and industrial clients requiring analysis on solution or solid samples.

Located within the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences, the spectrometers perform all of the standard 1D, 2D and 3D NMR solution experiments on 1H as well as a variety of other nuclei. Variable temperature experiments are also available. We have MAS probes for our 400 MHz spectrometer capable of up to 15KHz spinning rates enabling MAS and CPMAS experiments on solid samples.

The two spectrometers cover a broad range of NMR experiments from the more routine analysis (400 MHz) to high end experiments (600 MHz) on solution samples. In addition the sample changer fitted to the 600 MHz machine allows for a high throughput of solution samples. Solid samples are able to be analysed using either one of two solid state probes on the 400 MHz spectrometer.

Service and analysis capabilities
