Oregon State University NMR Facility Mission

The Oregon State University Nuclear Magnetic Resoance (NMR) Facility seeks to support NMR-related research and education across disciplines at OSU, throughout the Pacific Northwest and worldwide in order to advance the understanding of fundamental physical and biological systems that span multidisciplinary areas of science. To support these efforts, the facility strives to maintain state-of-the-art instrumentation at the highest levels of performance. Facility staff are highly knowledgeable and provide hands-on training to new users, experimental design expertise, assistance with data analysis and support for incorporating NMR into grants and manuscripts.  

About the Oregon State University NMR Facility

The OSU NMR Facility is a campus wide core facility, administered by the College of Science, that is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art NMR spectroscopy resources to the research and education community at Oregon State University and the greater northwest region.  The facility is housed in the NMR suite located on the first floor of the Linus Pauling Science Center.  NMR spectrometers are available at 800 MHz, 700 MHz, 500 MHz and 400 MHz (2), corresponding to magnetic field strengths ranging from 18.8 T to 9.4 T.  Data processing and analysis software is available on workstations in the NMR Facility.  The facility supports scientific inquiry in a diverse array of research areas such as structural biology, organic chemistry, natural products analysis and environmental studies.

The instrumentation in the OSU NMR Facility was funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, and Oregon State University.
