The Novo Nordisk foundation NMR facility at the Department of Chemistry

On the 22. September there was the inauguration of the Novo Nordisk Foundation NMR facility at the Department of Chemistry. Center head Prof. Mikael Bols presented the new facility for interested users.

High-quality and modern NMR instruments are essential for research in organic and inorganic chemistry and the Novo Nordisk Foundation NMR facility will provide that thanks to the generosity of the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The vision behind the facility was to strengthen and consolidate the NMR capabilities of the Department of Chemistry as it moves into the Niels Bohr building – the facility is also open to external users. The instruments are:

  1. One 500 MHz instrument optimized for proton detection. This obviously would give a higher sensitivity on proton spectra than is previously available but also on all 2D spectra that rely on proton detection – Noesy, Roesy, Tocsy, etc.
  2. One 500 MHz instrument with a broadband probe for multinuclear detection and valuable for studying inorganic and organometallic substances.
  3. One 400 MHz instrument for routine spectra.

The instruments are open for use now – interested users can contact Christian Tortzen (tortzen@chem.ku.dk). For external users technical assistance to run the spectra is provided. It is free, but the facility must be acknowledged in any publications: Novo Nordisk Foundation NMR facility at the Department of Chemistry (Grant: NNF21OC0067315).
