The principle of NMR

NMR spectroscopy is an analytical technique used to characterize the structure of molecules. Its principle is based on the properties of spins of certain nuclei to orient themselves when they are subjected to an intense external magnetic field (B0). Indeed, each nucleus has a spin which behaves like a small magnet. For NMR only the nuclei with non-zero spins are observable. 

NMR platform

It is composed of six high field NMR spectrometers to perform NMR in the liquid state.

NMR service

The service includes six spectrometers, three are self-service (360, 300 and 250 MHz) and three (600, and two 400 MHz) are subject to reservation. To access the NMR platform services, users have necessarily received training in spectrometer safety and use. The service also performs external services.
