NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE SPECTROMETER

Project: Research project

Description

Acquisition of a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer for
biochemical applications is proposed. This instrument will utilize a wide
magnet bore and will operate at a field strength of 4.7 tesla. It will be
capable of performing a variety of two-dimensional NMR experiments and will
be equipped for studies of solids and solid-like materials. The proposed
instrument is intended to provide new capabilities which are not presently
available at the applicant institution and which will enhance many aspects
of the NIH-funded research programs of the group of major users. The
proposed NMR spectrometer will be utilized for in vivo and in vitro studies
of metabolism, structural studies of lipid bilayers and biomembranes, and
studies of membrane encapsulated viruses. Each of these projects is of a
health-related nature.
