  • April 2, 2004 - Starting on Monday April 5, the Varian INOVA 500 MHz NMR will be available for general use. For the time being the instrument will be equipped with a probe capable of 13C and 1H NMR experiments only. The following options are now available to you.
    1. Submit your sample to be run for you.

    2. Get trained to run the instrument yourself.  Due to a restricted amount of space behind the console, training sessions will be limited to two people per session.  Sessions will be scheduled as needed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

  • March 31, 2004 - Congratulations are in order for the Center for Catalysis whose successful CFI proposal will fund a new 400 MHz NMR spectrometer with a robotic sample changer for high throughput.
    Processing and plotting of data is no longer permitted on the AVANCE 300.  All data must be processed off-line.  If you are not sure how to do this please come and see either Cherly McDowall or Glenn Facey in D'Iorio 416.Mon-Fri 8:00am - 1:00pm: 10 minute (maximum) booked time slots.No more logbook, No more walkup.These slots can only be booked on the current day.Illegally booked slots will be cancelled without notice.Mon-Fri 1:00pm - 8:00pm: 60 minute (maximum) booked time slots.These slots can be booked two days in advance.Mon-Fri 8:00pm - 8:00am: 12 hour (maximum) time slots.These slots can be booked two days in advance.Weekends (Saturday 8:00 am - Monday 8:00 am):12 hour (maximum) time slots.

  • March 4, 2004 - Due to an unfortunate magnet quench, the Gemini 200  NMR spectrometer in D'Iorio 430 will be out of service until the magnet can be recharged by a service engineer.  I anticipate approximately 4 weeks of down time.
