The NMR Facility at Hunter was established in 1983 and has recently undergone major renovations. At present, the facility consists of four NMR instruments: a Bruker Avance III 400, a Varian Inova 500, a Bruker Avance 500 equipped with a 13C-1H cryoprobe, and a Bruker Avance III 600 MHz spectrometer equipped with a cryoprobe. These spectrometers are utilized by scientists from Hunter College, as well as from the entire CUNY community. The large variety of available probes allows detection of virtually any MR-active nuclide. Data analysis is performed either at the spectrometer workstation with vendor software or off-line with third party software packages. The Facility gets extensive use from researchers for the analysis of organic and inorganic compounds, for the identification of natural products, and for the determination of three-dimensional structures of macromolecules.

Rules of Operation
The cost for use of the facility is $6/hour. This applies to researchers at Hunter or other CUNY schools. If time is available, researchers from other universities may use the facility for the same price. The charge for industrial use is $100/hour and is allowable if this usage does not conflict with federal regulations concerning use of equipment purchased with federal funds.
