High-throughput with a state-of-the-art robot enables up to 600 samples to be characterized on this instrument per day. Provides “Automation mode” with greatly simplified access and training, enabling large-scale surveys of reaction and chromatographic assays for research.
BBFO liquids probes; 1.2 and 4 mm magic-angle spinning and static SSNMR probes
High versatility is a critical aspect of this spectrometer. The BBFO liquids probe enables studies of chemical reactions over a broad range of temperatures from -150 to + 150oC.
In 2018, our successful UW2020 proposal has added significant solid state NMR capabilities to this spectrometer: Chemistry SSNMR website.
Similar to Artemis, up to 600 samples can be characterized on this instrument per day. This spectrometer has an important focus on instructional education. Samples from undergraduate classes come from more than 3000 students per year, with hands-on use involving more than 300 students per year. Even with such a huge role with undergraduates, the spectrometer still provides significant capabilities for researchers.
UW’s best instrument for 13C NMR, having more than 100 times the efficiency of previous generations of spectrometers. Drug-related compounds, energy efficient catalysts, foods, biochemical compounds, and biofuels are regularly characterized here.
An optimal combination of 1H sensitivity, with 13C, 15N and superior 19F capabilities enable very complex research to be carried out. Research extends from photochemistry to nanoparticles and on to lignins. Biochemical research gains powerful tools here, with one example being innovative research with high-power lasers that has the potential to improve studies of proteins and other materials by factors of 40,000!

5mm Prodigy-BBO, 5mm BBFO+, and 10mm BBO probes
Our newest spectrometer is unique in its ability to monitor reactions occurring under industrial conditions, including high gas pressures and temperatures in the WiHP-NMRR, and in-situ real-time monitoring using Bruker’s Insight-MR flow device. The liquid-N2-cooled Prodigy probe enables 10x improvements in data collection time. The 10mm probe has similar benefits for observing many metal nuclei. A primary goal of this instrument is to characterize mechanisms of catalytic processes, and improve polymer and energy-related product production techniques.
