RET General Data
Solid-State NMR: Bruker Avance 400 (9.4 T) wide-bore spectrometer, dedicated to solids; Bruker Avance 500 (11.7 T) narrow-bore spectrometer - a liquid-state machine upgraded with high-power amplifiers, MAS unit, etc, allowing solids work; main probes: MAS 2.5, 4 and 7 mm (up to 35 kHz spinning rates); 4 mm HR MAS, CRAMPS, static. In 1 year time both spectrometers will be equipped with a third X channel and triple-resonance probes. We are also getting a LC-NMR facility.
