Center Frequently Asked Questions
What spectrometers and probes are available in the center?
What do I have to do in order to use the spectrometers in the center?
In order to use any of the instruments in the center you must first go through our mandatory Practical NMR Workshop. This is held at various times throughout the year. Pending circumstances we may do personal training, but would still require attendance to the next available workshop. Please review the Training Policies and Procedure for additional information.
How do I get training?
How do I register for training?
We have setup a training request form that you need to fill out that will help us determine the level of training you require and then set you up with a time at which we can perform the training.
How do I get access to the schedule portion of the web site?
A password is required to access the schedule portion of the web site. You will receive this password from the staff when you are approved and have been trained to use the instruments.
Where can I order NMR tubes, solvents, etc?
We have links posted to the manufacturer’s website under the NMR Links located in the bottom toolbar. We also have a small stock of common NMR supplies.
What are the center’s rules about signing up for NMR time?
You must send in a request for time in the schedule portion of the web site. Requests will be filled in the order they were received. The staff has the discretion to make schedule adjustments on short notice, if necessary, to balance specific requirements, and in an effort to optimize instrument use. Keep in mind that the schedule is updated by the staff, so it may take some time for the schedule to reflect a recent request. You can read more about "Sign-up and User Charges" on the policy page.
What am I supposed to put in publications for acknowledgements?
A staff person should be included as a co-author in any publication that received a significant intellectual contribution from that person. All publications including any research work that utilized the NMR Center must contain an acknowledgement statement of the funding sources of the instruments and equipment. More detail information can be obtained in the "Authorship" or "Acknowledgements" sections on the policy page.
