Purdue Interdepartmental NMR Facility

Bruker AV-III-500-HD NMR Spectrometer

The Purdue Interdepartmental NMR Facility (PINMRF) provides access to state-of-the-art NMR techniques for Purdue University as well as for area businesses and technology parks. The Facility has spectrometers located in laboratories in four buildings on the Purdue campus. These spectrometers include nine solution-state machines ranging in field strength from 300 to 800 MHz and one 400 MHz wide-bore solids spectrometer. These spectrometers are able to perform the entire gamut of modern NMR techniques, and are used by researchers in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry/Pharmacology, and other departments in areas as diverse as protein structure determination, organic chemistry support, and metabolomics.

PINMRF recently (October 2016) began using software from iLab Solutions to assist with the management of our facility. To go to the PINMRF homepage at iLabs, click here: iLabs PINMRF Webpage. You will need to have an account set up with iLabs using your Purdue credentials to allow you to log in to see the rest of the iLabs PINMRF website. If you would like to see the iLabs kiosk webpage which you will use to log your instrument time usage, click here:iLabs PINMRF Equipment Kiosk.

Our facility is staffed with a director and an associate director (both of these being doctorate-level scientists), an NMR-systems engineer, a part-time administrative assistant, and two student workers. The wide range of skills present within the staff allow the Facility to provide excellent scientific and technical support, as well as the capability to engage in collaborative research.

If you would like more information about the Facility, or if you are planning to use the Facility's spectrometers, we have made up a reference document that we hope you will find useful. To view/download this document, please use this link: Overview Document.
