The NMR/EPR facility in the McGill Chemistry Department has five solution NMR spectrometers ranging between 300 and 500 MHz, a 400 MHz solid-state NMR spectrometer, and an X band EPR spectrometer. In addition, a 500 MHz NMR spectrometer that is part of the Quebec/Eastern Canada High Field NMR Facility has been temporarily moved into the Chemistry NMR facility while building renovations are being made to its original location.
The facility is capable of running most experiments of interest to the research chemist. Request for information should be addressed to Dr. Robin Stein. We offer services to both University and outside users.
- Varian 400 is up again and does 1H, 13C, and 19F!
- McGill Topspin addons updated
The McGill TopSpin addons have been updated. These are plot layouts and automation routines which simplify and improve processing. Instructions are available at http://nmr.chem.mcgill.ca/en/nmr/manuals. Get the addons themselves by emailing Robin.
- Electricity shutdown Friday, Sept. 21 8-11 AM
There will be a power outage in the NMR rooms on Friday, Sept. 21 from 9 to 11 AM. The instruments will be turned off beginning at 8 AM.
As far as I know, only the NMR rooms are affected.
- Mnova licenses have been updated
We’ve got the Mnova licenses for 2018-2019. The old ones will still work, but if Mestrelab introduces a new version of software, you’ll need the new ones. Ask Robin for the new licenses if you don’t have them.
- Quick instructions for using TopSpin available
A brief summary of installing and using TopSpin is available here.
