FWB NMR service

IPS hosts an NMR service (Franklin-Wilkins Building, laboratory 5.115) equipped with a Bruker Avance III HD NanoBay 400 MHz NMR spectrometer (Ascend™ magnet). With a 60 position BACS automated sample changer, the NMR service is provided on an open-access basis to local academic users where approved and trained users submit their own samples for analysis.

The BBO probe automatically tunes to most nuclei and is set up for routine 1H, 13C, 19F and 31P and is fitted with gradients. It is capable of operating with protonated solvents ((multiple) solvent suppression - no lock) and is equipped with InsightMR, (flow tube, pump and software) allowing real-time data analysis of reactions  The spectrometer is located on the 5th floor, corridor D.



Academic members of staff, post-doctoral researchers, graduate MSc/PhD students and other KCL employees are eligible to register as users. Undergraduates, including MPharm students, should have their samples run by their supervisor.

Potential users should download and read the risk assessment below before contacting Dr Mason to agree terms of access and then David Stanton to arrange for training. We ask all users, irrespective of their level of experience with NMR systems, to follow this process.

Access charges for users who require considerable amounts of NMR time are negotiable, casual access is charged at an academic rate of £16 per hour.

Access for non-KCL academics or researchers from industry is by arrangement with Dr Mason.
