NMR Facility Information

A 400 MHz and 500 MHz Agilent NMR spectrometers have recently been acquired through the Pharmaseas program funded by the Department of Science and Technology. Both spectrometers are installed in the new Research Building of the Institute of Chemistry in the National Science Complex of the University of the Philippines in Diliman. The 400 MHz NMR spectrometer is equipped with a 5-mm One NMR probe, an autosampler, and VNMRj ver.3.2 software. The 500 MHz spectrometer is equipped with a One NMR probe, a 3-mm triple resonance indirect dtection probe, a nanoprobe, and VNMRj ver. 3.2 software.
