Service

Internal service (service we provide within McGill)

Students, postdoctoral fellows, and other researchers in the Department of Chemistry are encouraged to learn how to operate the spectrometers. However, the facility manager usually can provide a modest amount of service work on any of the spectrometer systems in the facility. Service can ONLY be used by very low volume users who have not been checked out by the facility staff. Service spectra include most of the routine experiments: 1H, 13C, 31P, 19F, and other heteronuclear one pulse data collection, solvent suppression, proton 1D steady state and transient NOE experiments, proton 1D TOCSY, DEPT/INEPT, 2D homonuclear COSY/TOCSY/NOESY/ROESY, and 2D [1H, 13C]-HMQC/HSQC/HMBC.
