The CIREM currently operates four high field NMR spectrometers for liquid measurements. Two of them are located on ULB Solbosch campus.

Bruker Avance 300 Spectrometer

Shielded 7.0 Tesla Superconducting Magnet (300 MHz)

2-channel console with pulsed field gradient (PFG) and variable temperature (VT) units

Air cooling device

Probes:
– 5 mm probe with z-PFG for double resonance 31P-109Ag/1H experiments
– 10 mm probe for double resonance 31P-109Ag/1H experiments

Varian VNMRS 400 Spectrometer

Shielded 9.4 Tesla Superconducting Magnet (400 MHz)

3-channel console (high, high, low) with pulsed field gradient (PFG) and variable temperature (VT) units

FTS air-cooling device

9-sample carousel for automation

Probes:

– 5 mm OneNMR probe with z-PFG and auto-tune for double resonance 31P-15N/1H-19F experiments
– 5 mm ATB probe with z-PFG for triple resonance 31P-15N/1H/19F experiments
– 10 mm probe for double resonance 31P-15N/1H experiments

5 W continuous wave argon-ion laser and high-power diode lasers for NMR sample illumination
