Welcome to the NMR & EPR Facility serving the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at The Ohio State University. Please browse this website to discover the instrumentation and capabilities available to researchers.

A variety of NMR and EPR spectrometers are available for direct use by any trained user for those interested.  All New Users must register and request training through the FOM Calendar.


The NMR Facility is located in the basements of the CBEC Building (090) and Evans Laboratory (EL 0031).  Current instrumentation includes six solution-state spectrometers and one solid-state spectrometer. Each instrument is configured with unique capabilities and optimized for a large variety of experiments to meet the needs of interested research groups, undergraduate students, and industrial clients.

Solution NMR

Solid-State NMR

The EPR Facility is located in the basement of the CBEC Building (081) and includes an EMX-Plus EPR spectrometer and a benchtop ESR5000 EPR spectrometer. These instruments are both continuous-wave (CW), X-band EPR spectrometers and are available in both room temperature and cryogenic temperature operating modes.

Routine maintenance and repairs are provided by the NMR Facility Staff and the CBC Instrumentation Support Group.

Higher field instruments (600 MHz to 850 MHz) optimized for bioNMR applications are part of the Campus Chemical Instrument Center (CCIC) and the upcoming National Gateway Ultrahigh Field NMR Center, managed and operated by the Office of Research.
