NMR Facility

NMR Facility 2017.jpg

The Chemistry Department currently has four Bruker high field NMR spectrometers: one 600 Megahertz (MHz), one 300 MHz and two 400 MHz instruments. In addition there are two Bruker data processing stations. The 600, both 400s, and the processing stations are located in GeoChem 410 and the remaining 300 is located in MacMillan 315.

The website for making reservations on the NMR spectrometers is http://faces.ccrc.uga.edu.

To use the instruments, one must attend a training class and be issued a computer login with password. If you are interested in attending a training session, please contact facilities supervisor Russ Hopson.


Names and Locations of the NMRs in the Brown NMR Facility:

Name Location Probe Best NMR for


GC410 - 400MHz Furthest from Door on Left


2nd most sensitive for all nuclei


GC410 - 400MHz Closest to Door on Left


 2nd most sensitive for all nuclei


GC410 - 600MHz Closest to Door on Right


Most sensitive for all nuclei




2nd most sensitive for 1H, least sensitive for all X nuclei


GC410 - Processing Station Closest to Door




GC410 - Processing Station Furthest from Door



NOTE: A 10ul Capillary NMR probe and an 4mm HR-MAS probeare available for the 400MHz spectrometers and can be installed upon request.  A 600 MHz z-BBO that can lock on 19F on the 1H channel, and observe 2H on the BB channel, as well as a z-TXI probe are available for the 600 MHz Spectrometer.
