Planning Solid-state MAS experiments
Please, read the following documents:
The next sections outline protocols specific to our JEOL 300 MHz MAS solid-state system.
Preparation of a sample tube
Required sample tube: NM-05410ST32 (Zirconia, ZrO2); Order through firstname.lastname@example.org
Sample tube packing kit: NM-02611SHP32
JEOL Sample tube manual PDF
JEOL 3.2 mm Sample Tube
This tutorial introduces the JEOL 3.2 mm ZrO2 sample tube, discusses its parts, sample volume, describes packing principles, and demonstrates an integrity test (scratch test).
Taking apart an empty JEOL tube
This tutorial introduces a basic technique of handling the JEOL 3.2 mm tubes.
Packing a sample tube without spacers (50 mm-cubed sample volume)
This tutorial shows basic technique of packing the JEOL 3.2 mm tube.
Unpacking the tube (without spacers) and cleaning
This tutorial shows how to unpack the JEOL 3.2 mm sample tube and clean the sample tube assembly
Using spacers in JEOL 3.2 mm tube to pack a smaller sample volume (27 µl or mm-cubed)
This tutorial covers handling spacers and using a packing tool to measure correct height of the sample in JEOL 3.2 mm tube.
Preparing the sample on a benchtop spinner
NOTE: You must follow this protocol for packing the tube on a bench-top spinner or testing a prepacked tube prior to inserting it in the probe: User Protocol - Packing the sample.pdf
Basic solid-state experiment
A standard protocol for a basic Solid-State NMR experiment
Importing NMR data to MNova and Topspin
MNova Lite CDE
- MNova Lite is available to ND users from our website
- Import of NMR data to MNova is simple: just drag-and-drop from the file browser.
- From main menu in Topspin, click File:Open
- choose "Open NMR data stored in special format"
- set File Type: JCAMP-DX
- click OK - browser window opens
- Navigate the window into the folder containing your NMR experiments
- Select one of the experiments (name.jdf) and click Open button
- A fromjdx window opens
- set EXPNO field to 1
- DIR field should contain a full path to where your converted data should be. I suggest creating a separate folder on the same level with the original Varian data. Example:
- My data were in /Users/kovrigin_laptop/Documents/Workspace/Data/Data.XVIII/EKN98.Dale.full_reaction.repeat/data
- experiment was exp7.fid
- I copy-paste the ENTIRE path from VNMR-name field into DIR omitting the actual experiment name
- modify last folder name data to become data_converted
- select entire path and copy it to clipboard - we will need it to set up a new folder in Topspin Browser (below)
- Click OK
- Add the folder with converted data to the Topspin Browser:
- Right-click in the Browser window of Topspin and select Add New Data Dir
- paste the new path from clipboard to DIR field
- Enter convenient name to in ALIAS field to be displayed in Topspin Browser (in my example Varian)
- View the newly converted dataset same way as standard Bruker data
- Now you can return to File:Open to convert more files
- the conversion window remembers your paths. All you need to do is to select a new Varian .fid folder
- to refresh a list of converted files in Browser you should fold and unfold the folder by clicking on an arrow next to its name
- Whether you have .fid extension on Varian datasets or no extension - does not matter.
- NOTE: Sometimes Topspin hangs after conversion. To clear the condition navigate your file browser to the folder (on Mac) /Applications/TopSpin 3.5pl7 Utilities and launch the Terminate TopSpin.app.
- After that - start Topspin again
