NMR Facility

The 800 MHz Bruker Ascend NMR spectrometer is the newest addition to the NMR facility, of the International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences. The equipment is featured with an Avance III HD console (5 RF channels, 2 receivers), equipped with a TCI (1H/13C/15N/2H) cryogenically cooled probe (with temperature control over -40 and +80 °C ) optimized for 1H detection (inverse probe), and also a RT probe.

The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility at the ICCBS is a Core Science Facility established in 1982. It provides access to qualified researchers in the physical, biological, and industrial sciences to state-of-the-art NMR instrumentation for spectroscopy. The Facility serves mostly undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers in the Chemistry and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Departments all over the country.

The Facility presently operates thirteen superconducting NMR spectrometers (Bruker) of varying purposes and capabilities, including four instruments (one 800 MHz two 600 MHz and one 500 MHz) are equipped with cryogenically cooled probes, and one multinuclear probe to detect all type of elements. The new 800 MHz NMR instrument has recently been installed. The NMR instruments are accessible to trained users 24 hours per day, year-round.

The Facility also serve corporate and industrial clients, we offer a full range of NMR spectroscopy service options from routine 1D proton spectra acquisition and interpretation to complex 2D NMR analysis for the verification of their products as well as contaminants.
The Facility provides on request training to the researcher all over the country as well as to the researchers of our brother Muslim countries to enable users to independently operate the spectrometers.
