NMRFAM eNewsletter – July 2018

  *   August 2018 time requests: This is a reminder that July 19th 4pm CST is the deadline to have spectrometer time reserved for you for August 2018; please contact Lai Bergeman<mailto:lai.bergeman at wisc.edu> by e-mail or call 608-262-3173. You may schedule time yourself, as soon as the calendar is open by end-of-day on July 20th, by logging into Sundial and following the requests process.

  *   YouTube video tutorials and help pages for users of Sundial (creating and submitting time request) - http://www.sesame.wisc.edu/sesame_videos.html and http://www.sesame.wisc.edu/sesame_helppages.html

  *   Kurgan (Bruker 600) is Not operational.

  *   NMRFAM offers services such as:

     *   collect routine NMR spectra of small molecules, process the data with peak picking and integration, and provide their experimental results in electronic or paper format in order to advance research projects.

Users can submit their samples in 3 or 5 mm NMR tubes before 1 pm every Tuesday and Thursday. Their data will be acquired between 1 - 5 pm of the same day on a 500 MHz spectrometer optimized for 13C (no appointment necessary).

Please email Paulo F. Cobra<mailto:paulofcobra at gmail.com> when you drop off your samples.

New User/Collaborator Information:
Please note that if you would like to collaborate with our facility you will need to submit an abstract providing some detail to Dave Aceti<mailto:djaceti at wisc.edu>, our coordinator, who will bring it up for review at our weekly staff meeting for approval. Please visit the NMRFAM website<http://www.nmrfam.wisc.edu/become-a-collaborator.htm> for more information.
