The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility provides state-of-the-art NMR spectroscopy and molecular modeling needs to the research staff and students of the Scripps Research Department of Chemistry.
The facility houses a total of six spectrometers including a Bruker DRX-600 equipped with a 5mm DCH cryoprobe, Bruker DRX-500, Varian Inova-400, Bruker AMX-400, Varian Mercury-300, and Bruker AC-250. All instruments (except the AC-250) are fully equipped for multi-nuclear 1D and 2D NMR experiments. The DRX-600 is also equipped with triple-axis gradient accessories for advanced NMR experiments. The Inova-400 is equipped with an MAS Nanoprobe for NMR experiments of compounds on solid support, and for small quantity samples. Additional supporting instrumentation includes a Bruker Vector-33 FT-IR, workstations for offline data processing, the spectral prediction software from ACD, and Schrodinger molecular modelling software.
