The University of Pennsylvania is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Major Instrumentation award for acquisition of a 400 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectrometer with cost share funding provided by the Vagelos Institute. NMR is one of the most powerful tools available for the elucidation of the structure of molecules, and the new instrument will be used at the forefront of the chemical and energy sciences to advance innovative projects throughout the Penn campus. The instrument will be installed in the Penn Chemistry NMR Facility in early 2019.
