Access to Analytical Equipment



The UoN high-field NMR facility has recently been awarded £1.2m by EPSRC for upgrade of our 800 MHz NMR spectrometer. 

We are based in the School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham (UoN) and currently operate across two campuses and three buildings. We provide access to world class analytical equipment/expertise for the physical, medical and engineering sciences. 

Our instrumentation ranges from general application benchtop analytical equipment and walk-up spectrometers (NMR and MS), to the prestigious UoN high-field NMR facility.

We specialise in providing access to equipment with the tailored support necessary for you to get the best from our facilities. The majority of our equipment is available as 'walk-up access' where no booking and minimal training is required, or 'open-access' where booking is required and a short training session will be provided. Additional specialist teaching is available and one-to-one training is provided for users of the most sophisticated instrumentation.
