Varian T60 nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer; 60Mhz continuous wave, with permanent magnet. Made by Varian, Zurich, in 1969. Used in the Chemistry Dept, University College London, from 1970 to 1990, as the universal standard for undergraduate teaching and routine research. Also used by Prof Peter Garratt for research into aromaticity and annulenes in the early 1970s.

The nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer is one of the research chemist’s most important tools. It is used for the study of the molecular structure of organic and biochemical compounds. This example was made by Varian of Zurich in 1969 and was used by the Chemistry Department of University College, London, between 1970 and 1990 as the universal standard for undergraduate teaching and routine research. It was also employed by Professor Peter Garratt for his work into aromaticity and annulenes in the early 1970s.
