The Cardiff High Field NMR Facility in the School of Chemistry has opened its doors on 1 March 2012. We have a range of cutting-edge high field NMR spectrometers, including a new Bruker 600 MHz NMR spectrometer equipped with a cryo-probe which will provide a highly sensitive, faster and more efficient platform that is optimised for modern NMR protocols in the physical and the life/medical sciences. The purchase was made possible through generous funding from Cardiff University’s Large Research Equipment Fund. The new machine, the most advanced high resolution NMR machine in Wales (and indeed the South West of the UK), is ideally set up for biological samples as well as small molecule analysis and as such, will benefit researchers from across the University. Other instruments include 500 MHz, 400 MHz, 360 MHz and 300 MHz spectometers, including full low-temperature and multinuclear facilities, as well as solid-state NMR. The instruments of the CHF-NMR Facility are also available to external users.

To formally mark the opening of CHF-NMRF a symposium will be held later in the year.
