NMR spectroscopy is one of the most important analytical tools available to the modern chemist, however, the high initial cost of a modern NMR spectrometer and the cost of maintenance and cryogens prevent many educational institutions using the process on compounds prepared by their students.
With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, and Trinity University, San Antonio-area chemistry students now have easy and effective access to the Department of Chemistry's 300 MHz NMR spectrometer for analysis of compounds they have synthesized in experiments at their home institutions. Staff and students at Trinity will use the spectrometer housed at and maintained on campus to obtained on the spectrometer and will be made available via the web to students at their home institutions. Using free software, students may process and analyze the data without leaving their home institutions, or even their homes.
