RIP 270 MHz NMR
The superconducting magnet of the last operational JEOL CPR 270/54 NMR in the Western Hemisphere quenched on Tuesday, April 11 when its supply of cryogenic liquid was depleted. The instrument served the department for just over 25 years, but could no longer be repaired. More than 200 students used it for research projects, and over 1000 used it in lab classes. It will now be removed in preparation for installation of the new 400 MHz NMR, which will be delivered the week of April 17.
