CORVALLIS, Ore. – A $1.5 million upgrade to the Natural Products and Small Molecule Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility at Oregon State University will be dedicated on Wednesday, June 23.

The open house and tour of this facility will be at Gilbert Hall, in the first floor lobby of the Gilbert Addition, from 2-2:45 p.m. All interested OSU faculty and staff are invited, and the event is also free and open to the public.

This facility provides state-of-the-art instrumentation for chemistry research at OSU, as well as the state of Oregon, local businesses, and other colleges and universities. It includes a Bruker Avance III 700 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, one of the most sensitive carbon-detecting magnets in the world, as well as two new 400 MHz spectrometers for more routine spectroscopic needs.

The upgrade to this facility was made possible by financial support from OSU, the National Science Foundation and the Murdock Charitable Trust.
