solid state NMR lab

The KU Solid State NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) facility specializes in the analysis of solid materials.  Projects come from a wide variety of fields including soils, pharmaceutics, biomass, catalysts, biological materials, organometallics, and inorganics.  The lab is equipped with a Bruker Avance III three-channel spectrometer and two probes.
 
Using ssNMR you can learn about chemical shifts in functional groups and fingerprint sample components.  The output will show a peak analysis of components present and provide data to evaluate variations between sample lots that have had different exposures.
 
solid state NMR advantages

Non-Destructive
Sample can be returned

Non-Invasive
Samples can be studied without being perturbed (e.g., tablets)

Selective
Nucleus specific (13C, 15N, 31P, 1H, 19F)
Sample content and mixture components

Quantitative
Can measure relative concentration of physical forms without calibration curves
