CMS :: Core Facilities :: Spectroscopy

The Spectroscopy Core Facility is equipped with both nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LCMS) capabilities.

The Bruker Avance 500MHz NMR equipped with several probes including a 5mm Z gradient BBO probe (mainly for 13C spectra), and 5mm, 1.7mm, and 1mm Z-gradient TXI probes (for 1H and 13C spectra). This instrument can generate 1D as well as other multidimensional spectra such as COSY, TOCSY, HSQC, HMBC, and HSQC-TOCSY.


  • 2 single-quadrapole Waters Micromass ZQ spectrometers both equipped with ESI (electrospray inonization) probes.
  • 1 triple-quadrupole TOF (Time-of Flight) instrument for HRMS (High Resolution Mass Spectra) experiments.
  • 1 triple-quadrupole Ion Trap instrument (for MSn experiments

Located on the second floor of CMS, the NMR laboratory is in room 2311.
