This web site is still under construction. It will be completed soon. Please use our older pulse program web page.
This web page provides solid-state NMR pulse programs, most of which were introduced or improved by our group. It is our goal to make these NMR methods (which were developed with support by tax-payers' money) more widely available.
Users of Bruker DSX/DRX/Avance spectrometers should be able to run the programs with minor modifications, and may find the parameter files (click after the "Requires" category where possible) useful. For users of other platforms, the pulse timings, phase sequences, and comments given should still be useful.
With small modifications, the programs should work with Bruker XWINNMR 2.6 to 3.5. The most likely required change involves the detection commands and the frequency switches.
Within each category, the programs are listed roughly chronologically by publication date. A new program will usually be added at the end of the appropriate category.
In the "Requires" line, the simplest experiments are marked by a single !, the most difficult by !!!!!!.
The pulse programs provided here are intended only as guides. We cannot guarantee that they will work on your spectrometer. Incorrect parameter values, incompatible or malfunctioning pulse programmers, etc., could result in long pulses that may destroy your sample, probehead, preamplifier, and/or transmitter (high-power amp). You need to check the programs yourself, e.g. using a dummy load and oscilloscope, and adjust all parameters carefully for your system before use. We cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage caused by the use of the pulse programs and/or information provided here.
Some comments in the pulse programs may refer to older program versions and may not be accurate. Some phase lists may not be required in the current program version.
For background on the techniques listed, please refer first to the references provided. We will try to address specific questions, and certainly appreciate warnings, comments, and suggestions. However, for general questions of how to make pulse programs work on your spectrometer, please contact an application scientist of your spectrometer manufacturer.
