263 GHz/400 MHz DNP NMR Spectrometer in the DOE Ames Lab


Our group has regular access the 400 MHz/263 GHz DNP NMR located in Marek Pruski's lab in the DOE Ames Lab. This is one of two DNP NMR systems in the USA dedicated to characterization of materials. The DNP system was installed in the Ames lab in October 2014.

Other resources


Access to other instrumentaton such as solution NMR, mass spec., X-ray diffraction, 600 MHz solid-state NMR, etc., is obtained through the Chemical Instrumentation Facility (CIF) in the Chemistry Department at ISU.
