CMS :: Core Facilities :: Spectroscopy

The Spectroscopy Core Facility is equipped with both nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and liquid chromatography/gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC/GCMS) capabilities. Our instrumentation available:


NMR Spectrometers:

Bruker Biospin 500 MHz AVANCE Series Digital NMR, complete with the following probes for 1H, 13C, and 15N detection: 1.7 mm TXI inverse probe with Z-gradient, 5 mm TXI inverse probe with X,Y,Z-gradients and 5 mm BBO probe with Z-gradient
 
Bruker Biospin 600 MHz AV-III Series Digital NMR, complete with the following probes for 1H, 13C, and 15N, and 19F detection: 5 mm TXI inverse probe with Z-gradient, 5 mm BBFO probe with Z-gradient


MS available:

Waters XEVO G2-XS QTOF HRMS equipped with an Acquity UPLC
 
Sciex Q TRAP 4000 quadrupole/linear ion trap triple quad LC/MS/MS, equipped with an Sciex Exion LC and autosampler
 
Waters I-Class UPLC with QDa Mass Detector equipped with an PDA UV-Vis detector, degasser and autosampler.
 
Bruker Scion GC-MS/MS
Sample introduction includes two separate electronic flow-controlled ports; 1) split/splitless liquid injection 2) static headspace sample introduction. The mass spectrometer source has the capabilities of EI and CI (+/-) modes.

Users are responsible for all consumables including NMR tubes, deuterated solvents, pipets, and sample disposal.

*Hourly charges reflect actual reserved blocks on the NMR scheduler. Time is reservable in minimum 15-minute blocks.

**UNCW Students, MARBIONC tenants, and Outside Academic Institutions are expected to independently acquire data on their samples after appropriate training by the UNCW NMR/MS facilities Director. Otherwise, outside commercial charges apply.

***Per sample charges assume 1D 1H NMR only with maximum of 15 minutes of reserved instrument time.

****Charges reflect acquisition of data by UNCW NMR/MS Facilities Director.

 

UNCW faculty/student access will be prioritized over other users of this facility.
