Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometry
Similar to the technology used in an MRI, the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer uses electromagnetic radiation to characterize the atomic nuclei in a sample. NMR spectrometry is a technique used to determine the structure and identity of pure components and mixtures of both small molecules and polymers. This technique is very useful in identifying components in a mixture, examining the purity of materials, determining copolymer composition, measuring the extent of branching on molecules and studying reaction kinetics.
NMR spectrometry has tremendous analytical potential for structural determination, whether you're analyzing your own materials or a competitor's.
