Requests for deuterated samples are made through the ISIS Proposal System when applying for beamtime at ISIS, but enquiries are encouraged and should be made to ISISDeuterationFacility@stfc.ac.uk to discuss potential requirements. The lab staff have a wide range of chemical expertise, and the laboratory itself is well equipped with synthetic and analytical equipment.
All received requests pass through the Deuteration Facility FAP for internal review to access the feasibility of the request before passing onto the Science Groups. This is strictly a practical assessment of the technical and resource requirements of the request.
We also have the capability to host researchers, either that being PhD students to synthesise requested compounds with us or learn about the deuteration techniques that we use, to independent researchers on a longer term project.
