Because of the coronavirus outbreak, some services are limited.  Facility managers have been communicating details to users as reopening plans are slowly put in place.  Please do not assume that you may use any instrument until you have been told that the instrument is available.  Contact the relevant manager if you have any questions.  Please see the MC2 coronavirus page, the Chemistry Department coronavirus page, or the McGill coronavirus webpage for more information.


Liquids NMR: Bruker AVIIIHD 800 MHz NMR Spectrometer (“QANUC 800”)

Contact for basic chemistry experiments: nmr.chemistry [at] (Robin Stein) - Contact for biology experiments (QANUC): tara.sprules [at] (Tara Sprules) - Location: PP023

Rates are set by QANUC.

The QANUC 800 MHz instrument belongs to the national high-field facility (QANUC) and is managed by tara.sprules [at] (Tara Sprules).  The primary use of the instrument is for protein, ligand binding, and other biomolecular oriented work that requires a high magnetic field for sensitivity and resolution and triple resonance capabilities for studying compounds labeled with 13C and 15N.  Normally, usage is organized by contacting Tara.  Full information is given on the QANUC webpage.

The QANUC 800 is available to users of the chemistry NMR/EPR facility without prior booking on Monday mornings (subject to variation when Monday is a holiday) from 10 AM to 1 PM.  Users of the chemistry department facility who require excellent sensitivity or and/or resolution for 1H and 13C 1D experiments or for 2D experiments involving 1H, 13C, or 15N are welcome to bring their samples to PP 023.  Advanced and long experiments are not to be run during this time.  They can be scheduled by contacting Tara.
