Bryce Group

Our research in solid-state NMR and quantum chemical modelling of NMR parameters requires access to state-of-the-art solid-state NMR spectrometers, high-performance computing facilities, and wet lab space.  Detailed below are some of the facilities available to us.

National Ultrahigh-Field NMR Facility for Solids 900 MHz spectrometer
Further information on this facility is available at www.nmr900.ca


500 MHz wide-bore Bruker Avance NMR spectrometer
This departmental instrument has solids, liquids, and microimaging capabilities.
We are equipped with a variety of solids probes (2.5mm, 4mm, 7mm MAS and 5/10mm solenoid).


400 MHz wide-bore Bruker Avance III NMR spectrometer
This instrumemnt is dedicated to solids and is equipped with numerous probes including magic-angle spinning probes, a single crystal probe, and the DOR probe described below.

   Avance III

Double-rotation (DOR) NMR probe for high-resolution solid-state NMR of quadrupolar nuclei.


200 MHz wide-bore Bruker Avance III spectrometer
This instrument is dedicated to solids and is very useful for studying nuclei such as C-13, Si-29, P-31. 
There is also a 7 mm MAS probe designed specially for air-sensitive samples sealed in glass tubes.


Computing Facilities
In addition to a Windows or Linux-based PC for each student, we have one small 8-core cluster for quantum chemical calculations, and a second highspeed Sun Fire X4600 56-core cluster (NSERC RTI) was installed in July 2007. 
We are very grateful to Prof. Tom Woo and his group for their assistance with the setup and maintenance of these clusters.
Typical quantum chemical software to which we have access: Gaussian03, ADF, Dalton, CASTEP, abinit.
We are also users of the High-Performance Computing Virtual Laboratory (HPCVL).  Click here for further details.

Wet lab space
We are equipped for the synthesis and manipulation of organic and inorganic compounds, including those that are air- and moisture-sensitive.
Equipment includes a glovebox, vacuum line, high-temperature furnace, rotovaps, ball mill, sonicator, balances, etc.
