Event Details

This symposium takes place to celebrate the opening of the new NMR center at OSU's Campus Chemical Instrument Center (CCIC). With the support from OSU, the state of Ohio, and the NIH, our new center comprises 8 high-field NMR instruments by Bruker Biospin with magnetic fields between 600 MHz and 850 MHz. The capabilities of this state-of-the-art NMR center, which are unique in the US, allow the investigation of a wide range of molecules and materials. During the symposium, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the capabilities of our instruments during guided tours by our NMR staff.
