Masonic Cancer Center and Medicinal Chemistry Department - 500MHz

Masonic Cancer Center and Medicinal Chemistry Department - 500MHz

About the Instrument

The CCRB 500 MHz NMR is shared by the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Masonic Cancer Center. MNMR personnel provide service, support and training to the users. The 500 is located in Cancer and Cardiovascular Research Building (CCRB) which is close to TCF Stadium on University of Minnesota East Bank campus.

The 500-MHz spectrometer is equipped with a Bruker Avance IIIHD console. The spectrometer is a two-channel instrument with z-axis gradient and SampleXpress 60-sample autosampler.

Broadband Observe SmartProbe

This probe delivers high sensitivity on both the multinuclear and proton channel. It uses separate coils for 19F and 1H allowing the ability to observe 19F with 1H decoupling and to perform two-dimensional 1H/19F spectroscopy.

Probe signal-to-noise specifications:

1H 800:1;  19F 600:1;  31P 220:1;  13C 300:1;  15N 50:1
