The Bruker 400 MHz Avance III solid-state NMR is a wide-bore Bruker superconducting magnet, manually operated to facilitate solid-state NMR experiments, with two radiofrequency channels (1H and X) and is capable of broadband detection. It is used primarily for detection of nuclei such as 11B, 13C, 15N (only enriched samples), and 29Si. A User Manual is available here. An overview of the Solid State NMR community is available online here. A recent Nature Review on Solid State NMR is available (PDF).
Currently solid-state NMR has two probes: one 7 mm magic angle probe for ZG, CP-MAS and CP-TOSS experiments at a maximum spin rate of 5 kHz and one 4 mm magic angle probe for ZG, CP-MAS and CP-TOSS experiments at a maximum spin rate of 12 kHz.
Please contact Dr. Chariklia Sotiriou-Leventis (email@example.com) or Rushi Soni (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information regarding the solid-state NMR. All solid-state NMR sample acquisitions will be done by Rushi Soni.
