A new Bruker 300 MHz Ultra-Shield Fourier spectrometer equipped with 1H and 13C amplifiers, variable temperature Control and Z-gradient electronics. A Room Temperature Fourier Dual 5 mm Probe for 13C-nucleus observation with 1H decoupling and observation and Z-gradient is currently installed on this instrument. Additionally, an older 300 MHz spectrometer operating with a Varian Gemini 2300 gradient console operating with a probe configured for observation of 1H, 13C, 19F, and 31P nuclei, completes the list of NMR spectrometers at the Chemistry Department. These two instruments are dedicated to teaching purposes and the simplest routine needs of organic synthesis laboratories of the Chemistry Department.
