We are a full service NMR Facility that welcomes all users of NMR—internal to the University or external businesses and institutes.

  • Your samples can be submitted directly to the facility for preparation, spectrometer optimization, and acquisition by facility staff.
    • Your NMR data will reside on a secure data server and is backed up weekly
  • We are available for consultation, for research support, and to collaborate for NMR data collection, processing, and interpretation.
  • For those that prefer to collect their own spectra, we also train clients on routine or advanced NMR techniques.
    • Many of the spectrometers are available with an easy-to-use sample changer interface that allow for NMR acquisition at the click of a button.
    • We can provide facility accounts on demand  - for more details, feel free to enquire below
  • In addition to proton, carbon and many 2D NMR techniques, we can acquire NMR on a wide variety of nuclei, in liquids, semi-solids or solids.
  • We can follow standard operating procedures for external samples—please use our sample submission/chain of custody form for SOP samples.
  • Sample submission forms are available below or from CSICOMP Submission Form.
  • For samples to be submitted following SOPs, please use this form: CSICOMP Submission Form for SOPs.
