Abstract : With the funds awarded from DOD-AFOSR and matching funds from New Mexico State a new Varian Gemini 200 MHz nmr was purchased and installed in the spring of 1994. This instrument is capable of 1H and 130 nmr, is very sensitive, and can also do Hetcor experiments to facilitate proton assignments. It is very easy to use and has proven thus far to be extremely reliable. The change in the research output in the department has been significant. Whereas previously students had to sometimes wait days to run routine nmr spectra because our high field instrument was otherwise occupied with longer experiments, now they can run spectra immediately (or with minimal wait). This speeds up structure assignments, and gives students instant gratification when experiments succeed and rapid feedback when they are not successful.
