Bruker AVANCE II 600 MHz multiprobe/solid-state/micro-imaging NMR spectrometer


Bruker AVANCE II 600 MHz multiprobe/solid-state/micro-imaging NMR spectrometer

This state-of-the-art instrument is equipped with high-resolution, solid-state and micro-imaging capabilities, enabling a wide range of materials to be researched, from proteins and inorganic solids characterization to diffusion coefficients measurements. Each system comes with specific probes to cover a large variety of nuclei and experiments.

Research Facility

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Facility - Centre for Chemical Analysis, Research and Training (C-CART) - CREAIT Network
Memorial University
St. John's
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

Solution-state NMR, solid-state NMR and micro-imaging facility. We provide training for users as well as technical support. Samples can also be submitted to our staff for analysis by infrequent internal or external users.

All instruments are user run with training provided by research assistants and are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. There is also a sample service for infrequent users. All data workup is done off-line from the instruments on networked PCs utilizing various software packages. One and two dimensional experiments are available with menu driven data acquisition and macro driven data workup.

C-CART provides research support, training and chemical analysis services, to undergraduate and graduate students, university researchers, government agencies and private sector R&D companies. The instruments associated with C-CART are grouped into five service areas: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), X-Ray Crystallography (XRD), Mass Spectrometry, Materials Characterization, and Optical Spectroscopy.
