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 Convenor, SAIF, NMR Research Centre, Indian Inst. of Science, Bangalore - 560 012".

    You may receive an email acknowledgement as soon as the sample reached us and an email notification when the result is ready. (Results will be available in pdf format.) The bill will be sent to the given address later. First time users, please read the "FAQ" section, which contains useful tips.

    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. It is advisable to supply a reference sample for nuclei other than Aluminium, Carbon, Phosphorous and Silicon.

    The required charges should be paid along with the sample by a Demand Draft (DD), payable to "The Registrar, IISc" in Bangalore.

    The revised cost for NMR experiment, w.e.f. April 1, 2017 is given below, inclusive of applicable tax. 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. Following table is indicative, which shows the minimum charge required in each category and you will be informed about additional charges if the experiment takes more time.

    Please click here to know the approximate time required and use this calculator to find out minimum charges required for the DD.
