NMR at Edinburgh

The School of Chemistry NMR facility is maintained by three staff members. The facility is equipped to perform solution-phase and HR-MAS measurements. It is set up to perform the most advanced NMR experiments in automation or manual mode. Measurements can be tailored by our expert staff to meet specific requirements of the problem at hand.

NMR Spectrometers

  • NMR methodology development

  • Carbohydrates: structure and conformation

  • Protein-carbohydrate interactions

  • Environmental mixtures analysis, e.g. soil, water

  • Multidimensional NMR of biomolecules

  • Food/drink chemometric analysis

  • In situ reaction assembly and monitoring using stop flow NMR

  • Isotope labelling and synthesis

  • Benchtop NMR

Specialisation of the facility


The NMR facility contains a preparation laboratory and a computing suite. Data are archived on the server immediately after being recorded, and can be made accessible to external users. The NMR computer suite is equipped to support Bruker Topspin and MestreLab’s Mnova; other NMR-related software packages are also available on request. The Lloyd-Jones lab is a UK centre for mechanistic investigations in organic chemistry and catalysis.

Supporting Infrastructure

Training is available for external users who wish to use the facility in automation or in manual mode. Samples can also be run on any of the spectrometers by our staff.
