The purpose of the grant was to purchase a 300 MHz multinuclear nuclear magnetic resonance NMR spectrometer. The cost of the instrument was projected to be the funded amount of 243,058. Additionally it was projected 48, 950, was needed to renovate room 123 of the Hubbard Chemistry Building at North Carolina Central University NCCU to accommodate the instrument. The specific renovations needed were itemized in the proposal. The costs of the renovation was to be paid by NCCU as matching funds. The instrument is to be used by the principal investigator PI to characterize new drugs having antiinflammatory properties that he is synthesizing. These drugs include 3,5-isoxazolidinediones, 3,5- pyrazolidinediones, 1,3 ,5-triazabicyclo 3.1. 0hexane-2,4-diones, 1,3 ,5-triazine-4,6 1H,5H-diones and 1,2,4-triazolidine-3,5-diones. The instrument will be used by Dr. Shawn Sendlinger to characterize new inorganic oligomers and polymers having improved nonlinear properties. Other members of the Chemistry faculty will use the instrument to characterize their research compounds. The instrument will also be available to B.S. and M.S. students in the Department for their research projects, and it will be used in several of our teaching courses. Magnetic nuclei to be detected by the instrument include 1H, 13C, 15N, 31P, 51V, 95Mo, and other transition metals.
