Availing the Facility

The following solution and solid-state NMR spectrometers are available for anyone who wants to utilise our NMR service.

400 MHz  Instrument make: BRUKER;  Model: AV400
 Proton freq: 400 MHz
solution NMR spectrometer

400 MHz  Instrument make: JEOL;  Model: ECX400
 Proton freq: 400 MHz
solid-state NMR spectrometer   (currently not working)

500 MHz  Instrument make: JEOL;  Model: ECZ500

solution NMR spectrometer

To carry out an NMR experiment, please provide the following:
  • Sample
  • Payment
  • Request Form
  • The packet (preferably in a cloth-lined regular size office envelope) with above items should reach "The Convener, SIF, IISc NMR Facility, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore - 560012".


    For solution NMR (this also includes, solid sample that can be dissolved in CDCl3 / D2O / DMSO-d6, etc.): Please supply around 5 mg. sample for proton NMR and 25 mg. for other nuclei, preferably in a small vial. Do not dissolve your sample. We provide the solvent.

    For solid-state NMR, (samples that do not dissolve in any of the common solvents) 300 mg. of sample as fine powder is required. Also make sure that your sample is non-magnetic. Solid-state 1H NMR facility is not available.

  • Payment

    The required charges should be paid before carrying out the work through one of the following modes:

    i-STEM Follow this link
    Online Mode Name: The Registrar, IISc
    A/C No: 31728098170   
    IFSC code: SBIN0002215    (SBI, IISc)
    Demand Draft Payee: The Registrar, IISc
    Payable at: Bangalore

    i-STEM mode will give an instant payment receipt. In other two options, it shall take up to three months. In case of payment made through online mode, please send a snapshot, showing UTR / Ref. number to nrcdata@auto.iisc.ac.in.

    The revised cost for NMR experiments is given below, inclusive of GST. The rate mentioned below is to carry out one experiment of a sample taking up to half an hour. If it exceeds this time, every additional half hour will be counted on pro rata basis.

    Request Forms

    User Type User Request Forms
     All users

     Solution NMR Form

     Solid-State NMR Form

    Print this Form, fill the details and send it along with the samples. The charges are subsidised for academic and government users; hence the Form should carry either an official seal or an accompanying request on an official letter-head.

    Advance booking or personal visit is not required to avail our service. Arrange the sample set to reach us using any postal/courier service. We carry out the experiment and send you the result by email. Under normal conditions, the result will be available within a week. In case of no communication from us in two weeks, please send an email to nrcdata@auto.iisc.ac.in.

    In case of spectrometer unavailability, more samples in the queue or any other operational problems, we may run your experiment on a spectrometer other than mentioned above, which will be of same or higher specification.
