It is possible to run NMR experiments with non-deuterated solvents. It will have to be run in an unlocked state. Follow these steps:
- rsh shims.best
- In bsmsdisp window, go to LOCK tab, if the LOCK button is either red or green, click it so that it is white.
- Click the SWEEP button so that it is white.
- (optional) shim on the FID. Type gs (similar to zg but without accumulating data, used for real time adjustment of various parameters), then adjust z and z2 in bsmsdisp window to make the FID as long and thick as possible.
- zg. If step 5 is not done, the spectrum collected will be of lower resolution as shim is not optimized.
