BioC 4225 Summer Semester 2019 Course Overview

Research Assistant Professor at MNMR Center Dr. Gopinath Tata teaches BioC 4225 each summer, which is a one credit course spread over four days (June 3, 2019 - June 6, 2019).

Lecture topics covered include:

• Introduction to Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

• NMR Hamiltonians and product operator formalism

• Experimental aspects of NMR spectroscopy

• Phase cycling and pulsed field gradients

• Calibration of NMR parameters

• Water or solvent suppression techniques

• Homonuclear correlation experiments

4-Day NMR Techniques Course (BIOC 5225, 1 Credit, Spring 2019)

Our Dr. Gopinath Tata is the instructor for BIOC 5225 Graduate Laboratory in NMR Techniques which will be offered Spring 2019.  This course is 4 days in length (1/22/2019-1/25/2019) and is similar to the annual workshop held by the Center.  An introduction to NMR techniques will be provided, as well as demonstrating how to choose the appropriate NMR experiment for specific types of samples.  To view the full syllabus, please click here.

Reminder: Log Books and Billed Time

As a reminder, you need to use the logbooks at each spectrometer to record your time used. Billing is completed based on actual time logged in, so if you remain logged in for 4 days, you will be charged all 4 days, unless you note in the logbook your reason for not logging out as well as the actual time used. 

Thank you 

3-day Basic NMR Workshop scheduled Nov. 7-9, 2017

MNMR will host a 3-day Basic NMR Workshop November 7-9, 2017.  This workshop will fulfill requirements to gain access to the NMR center.  It will focus on practical operation of the spectrometers.  We will meet each day from 10AM to 4PM and it will be a combination of lecture and hands-on spectrometer operation.

Tuesday – MNMR Intro and Policies, NMR Basics, 1D acquisition and 1D data processing

Wednesday – 1D optimization, Homonuclear 2D NMR and 2D data processing

Thursday – Heteronuclear 2D NMR, other topics (afternoon optional)

Reduced Operator Rates, effective November 1, 2017

In an effort to make NMR accessible to more groups at the University of Minnesota, we are cutting our operator charges in half, to $50/hour. We hope to reach out to new user groups at the University to show  what NMR is capable of as it pertains to their research. If you are interested to learn more about what NMR can do for your lab, contact Tara at

New Hourly Spectrometer Rates, effective September 1, 2017

After recent updates to equipment in the MNMR Center, we are adjusting the hourly rates of all spectrometers, with the exception of the 900 MHz. The costs will be based on the capabilities of each instrument, with some rates increasing, and others decreasing. See the chart below for the new charges which will be in place starting September 1, 2017.
