Prep HPLC system expected in June... 5/1/13
A preparative LC system is on order from Agilent and we expect delivery in eary June. It will have a fraction collector and can accomodate flows up to 200 mls/min. Visit the new page under "Other instruments...".
EPR expected sometime in May... 4/22/13
We expect the new EPR to be delivered in May and installed by mid-June. We are getting everything ready in room 1708 Gilman. Sarah has recently returned from a week of EPR training at Bruker, and is now an EXPERT!
Instrument Updates... 12/12/12
All of the instruments received this summer (Cary UV-Vis, Rigaku Powder X-ray, Microcal Isothermal Microcalorimeter, and Micromeritics ASAP 2020 Physisorption) are fully operational and training is available.
EPR system soon to arrive... 12/12/12
We are in the process of acquiring a Bruker EleXsys E-580 EPR. The system will be capable of both CW and pulse (FT) measurements in the X-band, and will be fully equipped for low temperature measurements, aqueous samples, kinetic studies, ELDOR, DEER, and other measurements. We expect to receive the instrument in the first quarter of 2013.
New (to CIF) Instruments... 8/31/12
This summer we bid farewell to the Trewyn and Pohl groups. Several instruments have been transferred to our facility, including a Rigaku Ultima IV powder x-ray diffractometer, Micromeritics ASAP 2020 physisorption unit, Cary 100 Bio UV-Vis spectrophotometer, and Microcal VP-ITC isothermal microcalorimeter. All are currently working and available to previously trained users, except the Cary UV-Vis, which we expect to have operational soon. Web pages and training materials will show up on this site soon!
Be cool, attend NMR Summer School... 7/6/12
The NMR folks are presenting four lunchtime seminars over the next few weeks, covering a variety of topics. More info and sign-up sheets are posted outside the NMR lab; announcements have been sent to the NMR users list. Didn't get the announcement? See Sarah to be added to the NMR e-mail list.
Another Power Failure... 6/20/12
On 6/19 at 2:30 PM all of ISU and the City of Ames experienced a power failure. Power was restored to Hach Hall later that night; other services necessary for instrument operation were restored before 8:00AM. All of the instrumentation is now operational except the Scintag powder diffractometer and the GCT GCMS. We anticipate that the GCMS will be available by late afternoon unless unforseen difficulties arise in the start up.
AV-III 600 NMR Installed 1/09/12
The installation of the new Bruker Avance III 600 MHz solution NMR is complete and the instrument is available for use immediately. Sarah and Shu are training users.
Network Data Cloud a Big Success 1/09/12
All NMR data is now automatically archived in the CIF Network DATA Cloud, provided by ISU IT Services. The data can be easily retrieved for local processing using our multi-license MNOVA NMR software. See Sarah and Shu for assistance in loading a copy on your PC or Mac.
