The Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division houses two NMR facilities able to probe the atomic structure of materials. We have a long-standing history of excellence in conducting state-of-the-art NMR analyses to serve the research community within and outside Argonne. Users welcome!
- Multinuclear broadband observe probes (2.5-, 5-, or 10-mm tube diameter) with digital tuning from 15N to 31P and 19F with 1H decoupling
- Automatic tuning and matching system and robotic sample changer
- Variable temperature with -150°C minimum, 200°C maximum and ±0.1°C accuracy
- 500 MHz NMR spectrometer with high level of automation. Active parameter sets for: 1H, 2H, 7Li, 11B, 13C, 14N, 15N, 17O, 19F, 25Mg, 27Al, 29Si, 31P, 95Mo, 119Sn and 195Pt
- Solution-state NMR with one-, two- and three-dimensional pulse sequence library
- Solid-state NMR for energy storage and conversion through collaborations
- Elucidate structure and composition of solid, liquid and gaseous materials, including catalysis, energy storage and biological samples.
- Probe chemical activity, dynamics and reaction kinetics.
- Investigate surface, interface and bulk chemistries.
