Bruker Avance II 500 MHZ NMR Spectrometer
The Bruker Avance II 500 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer provides detailed information on the topology, dynamics, and three-dimensional structure of molecules in solution and in the solid state. Our probes allow routine proton and carbon NMR spectroscopic analysis, as well as other heteronuclei, such as boron, phosphorus, fluorine, and silicon. It is capable of acquiring 1D and 2D multi-nuclear NMR spectra with high precision in a temperature range from 150 °C down to –100 °C for the study of dynamic molecular behavior. A solid state probe is also available for routine experiments on solid samples.
AB SCIEX TF4800 MALDI TOF-TOF Mass Spectrometer
This instrument is a tandem time-of-flight mass spectrometer system, providing high resolution molecular mass coverage in the range of 500 to 5000 g/mol and low resolution up to 150,000 g/mol. It is suitable for organic small molecules, synthetic polymers and biopolymers, among others. High-resolution precursor ion selection enables MS/MS analysis of peptide and protein sequences.
Thermo-Fischer Nicolet iS50 FTIR
The Nicolet iS50 FTIR from ThermoFisher is designed to collect infrared spectra over the mid-IR region using a KBr beamsplitter and a built-in diamond crystal attenuated total reflectance (ATR) to measure the surface properties of solids, liquids, and compressed pellet samples in either absorbance or transmission modes. An additional variable angle reflectance accessory by Pike VariGATR with a germanium crystal also allows for the measurement of thin films. Furthermore, a DRIFTS (Diffuse Reflectance) attachment module with a ZnSe crystal (Pike DiffuseIR) is available for use upon request with additional user training for the advanced temperature studies of materials in a controlled environment.
Agilent 1100/Bruker microTOF-Q LC-MS
This instrument provides reverse-phase liquid chromatography analysis with an Agilent 1100 HPLC and 100-vial autosampler, and post-chromatographic mass spectroscopy with the Bruker microTOF-Q MS. Our system enables formula determination of small molecules and peptides, and separation and analysis of complex mixtures. The MS also functions as a stand-alone electrospray ionization tool for direct injection of analytes. The microTOF-Q affords a mass accuracy of 1-2 ppm, high resolution >17,500 FWHM and true isotopic pattern.
The Agilent 6890N GC is equipped with a flame ionization detector (FID) and an Agilent 5973 mass spectrometer (MS) to provide highly repeatable and reproducible identification of organic compounds up to 800 g/mol. A 100-vial autosampler enables high-throughput sampling of gas and liquid phase analytes with user-defined temperature programs up to 350 ˚C.
