The measurement of small variations in radio-frequency nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) leads to the elucidation of covalent structure, stereochemistry (including conformations), and dynamics.

Using the NMR Instruments
To gain access to the FACES online scheduling system or to use the instruments, users must have completed the training course offered by the NMR staff. To sign up for training, contact the NMR staff.
Occasional users and external concerns may submit samples to NMR staff in 006 Hahn Hall South for analysis. Samples must be completely labeled and a submission form must be completed. Service is generally provided on a "first come, first served" basis, but emergencies will get higher priority if possible.
Each individual wishing to use an NMR instrument or to submit samples to the service center must have a current Interdepartmental Service Request (ISR) on file. Instructions for creating an ISR can be found here.
