High versatility is a critical aspect of this spectrometer.  Studies of organometallic and inorganic compounds benefit from Bruker’s Prodigy technology, which improves efficiencies of most NMR-active nuclei by a factor of 10.  BBFO 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.

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!
