The NMR spectrometers remain accessible.  The core will close if so directed by the Department, Dean or Chancellor.

Drop-off has been cancelled until further notice.

We will continue sanitizing surfaces in the NMR Core with a 70% isopropyl alcohol solution, including all keyboards, PC “mice”, door handles, ladders, NMR tube racks, and depth gauges.

For questions about using the NMR Core, please contact Marc ter Horst.

Bottles of isopropyl alcohol are available by the low field (by the 400’s) and the high field (500 and 600’s) spectrometers.  You can put some of the solution on a paper towel to wipe down keyboards, PC mouse, spinners, door handles, etc. if desired.
