The EPR facility is now open to users.

Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy is a technique for studying materials with unpaired electrons. It is particularly useful for studying metal complexes or organic radicals.

EPR spectroscopy is used in various branches of science, such as biology, chemistry and physics, for the detection and identification of free radicals and paramagnetic centers. It is very sensitive and specific for studying both radicals formed in chemical reactions and for understanding the mechanisms for chemical reactions.

The EPR facility at the Paul Bender Chemistry Instrumentation Center provides access to EPR spectroscopy for users within, and outside of, the Dept. of Chemistry. Please contact the facility director for information about access and fees.
