Chemistry and Biochemistry Department Receives NSF Grant for New NMR Spectrometer

400 MHz NMR SpectrometerThe Department was awarded a grant, entitled “MRI: Acquisition of a 400 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectrometer at Miami University” for $295,750. This instrument will replace our 200 MHz and 300 MHz NMR’s, which are over 25 years old. The lead PI on the grant was C. Scott Hartley, who assembled a team of colleagues including Wei Liu, Meredith Erb, Michael Crowder, Dominik Konkolewicz, and others to justify the new instrument. The new instrument will include an auto sampler, which will allow for students in our sophomore organic chemistry labs to collect and analyze NMR data on their compounds.
