Lewis & Clark College recently acquired a 600 MHz NMR spectrometer (a Bruker Avance NEO system) with support from the National Science Foundation and the Murdock Trust. To maximize the impact of this instrument, we welcome members of the Portland-area scientific community to make use of it for their research.
The system is equipped with four radiofrequency channels, a BBFO broadband probe (1H, 19F, 31P - 109Ag, 2H), a TXI probe (1H, 13C, 15N, 2H), variable temperature capabilities, and a sample changer. Currently, there is no fee structure (i.e., no hourly fees or training fees), but outside users will need to submit a very short report on their activities (for grant progress reports due Summer 2022) and acknowledge support from the NSF/Murdock Trust on research publications that use spectra acquired on this instrument.
If you're interested in using this instrument, or would like to know more about how it can support your research, please contact Nikolaus Loening (link below).
"The broad band capabilities of this 600 MHz has made a positive impact on my research in boron chemistry and more importantly, this project allowed me to recruit and include a more diverse student cadre in a research endeavor in main group chemistry." Andrew Baggett
