Varian Mercury 300

KNCL 119 & GDYR 103a

The MRC operates two Varian Mercury 300 spectrometers, one in the Department of Chemistry (KNCL 119) and one in the Department of Polymer Science (GDYR 103a).

These NMR instruments are 300 MHz spectrometers equipped to observe 1H/19F and 13C/31P. In addition to routine 1-D 1H and 13C spectra, homo- and heteronuclear decoupling, APT, DEPT, COSY, HETCOR (Heteronuclear shift correlation), homonuclear-2DJ, NOE Difference and saturation experiments etc., can be performed.
