NMR Spectroscopy

The NMR Facility at the West Virginia University is located in the Department of Chemistry and available for students, staff, post-doctoral fellows, faculty and all community at West Virginia University.

The NMR Facility includes three superconducting NMR spectrometers: one UnityINOVA 600 MHz (Varian), and two JEOL 270 MHz Eclipse.

The 600 MHz NMR (VARIAN, INOVA) spectrometer was installed in 2003. It is anticipated that this spectrometer will benefit researchers at West Virginia University and throughout the state. The NMR spectrometer has both solution and solid capabilities.

The 270 MHz JEOL spectrometers were installed in 1990 and dedicated primarily to provide modern FT NMR access for undergraduate teaching.

The Department of Basic Pharmaceutical Sciences at the West Virginia University has one 300 MHz UnityInova NMR instrument and is mainly used by Prof Gannet’s group.

All researchers using any NMRs are charged for the use of the NMR instruments. The account holder will be informed about the charged fee once per year. This money will be used to cover all costs of operation including cryogens (liquid helium and nitrogen), software, and other incidental repairs.

Reservation of NMR time is done online, using the Faces Scheduling System software. Accessing the NMR requires prior training and a personalized user account. Directly contact the Director of the NMR facility for a training appointment.


Collaborative research opportunities with the Faculty in the Department of Chemistry at WVU 
The NMR Facility staff provides training in instrument operation, and can assist in the planning of experiments and interpretation of spectra.

The NMR Facility staff can provide remote processing of your one or two-dimensional NMR data (1D &2D) using the ACD/1D&2D Processor. You can receive the 1D or 2D NMR spectra in TIFF or GIF formats via email (in order to insert these spectra in your manuscripts or presentations).
