High Field NMR


Overview of Services

Our Mission

The Rutgers High Field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) facility is located on the Busch campus of Rutgers University-New Brunswick. We are committed to supporting NMR based structural biology and material sciences research for the University and the surrounding region. The center provides liquid-state and solid-state NMR for academic and industrial users.The facility is supported by two full-time staff members and is a University core facility, financed through usage fees.

Our Capabilities

The NMR facility is equipped with five high field spectrometers ideal for the most complicated and challenging research in the areas of:

  • Bio-Solution: Available at 800, 700, and 600 MHz, potential experiments include protein dynamics and structure elucidation and protein-ligand binding.
  • Bio-Solids: On the 800 and 600 MHz spectrometers, fast magic-angle-spinning (MAS) probes allow for solution-like investigations of membrane proteins, aggregates, and large complexes.
  • Materials: In addition to the 800 and 600 MHz NMRs, a dedicated 400 MHz instrument is available for work on solid materials such as concrete, polymers, catalysts, and batteries.
  • Service: Various levels of support are available, ranging from access only, to complete data acquisition and analysis.
