Welcome to the web pages of the D.M. Grant NMR Center at the University of Utah. The NMR Center is a key resource of the University of Utah, that supports the research community by supplying access to state-of-the-art NMR instrumentation. The NMR Center currently has five operating NMR instruments, supporting research involving both liquid/solution phase sample and solid-state materials. For solutions studies, the Center has two instruments operating at 500 MHz (1H), and one instrument at 800 MHz (1H). The Center has a wide ranges of NMR probes, supporting acquisition of NMR spectra for all of the common nuclei (1H, 13C, 2H, 31P, 19F, 10B, etc).
Literally every known solution NMR experiment is supported, including multinuclear/multidimensional studies, diffusion-ordered (DOSY) experiments, and chemical-exchange-staturation-transfer (CEST) experiments. A speciality of the liquids-capable instruments is support for structural biology and biophysical studies, including full support of non-uniform sample (NUS) methods. For studies involving solid-state samples, e.g., microcrystalline powders, the Center operates SSNMR instruments at 200 MHz (1H) and 400 MHz (1H) that are capable of recording all of the standard SSNMR experiments, including CP/MAS, HETCOR, and FIREMAT experiments.
