Nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer- 500 MHz

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a research technique that exploits the magnetic properties of certain atomic nuclei. It determines the physical and chemical properties of atoms or the molecules in which they are contained
Make and Model
Available mode for use
1D experiments eg 1D NOE, APT, DEPT can be recorded 2D experiments eg COSY, NOESY, TOCSY, HSQC, HMBC can be done. Solid state samples for 13C, 31P etc nuclei can be recorded. Variable temperature experiment can be recorded
  • Variable temperature facility is available. Samples can be recorded in the temperature range from -40°C to + 60°C with suitable solvent.
  • Along with the routine 1D experiment of nuclei like 1H, 13C, 19F, 31P, other nuclei 11B, 27Al, 77Se, 125Te, 199Hg etc can be recorded.
  • With 5mm multinuclear probe (BBFO probe), analysis of liquid samples of nuclei like 1H, 31P, 13C, 77Se, 125Te, 199Hg etc can be recorded.
  • Major application of NMR spectroscopy lies in the area of synthetic organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, bio-organic chemistry, bio-inorganic chemistry, polymer chemistry and organometallic chemistry.One of the main advantages of FT-NMR spectroscopy is that a number of FIDs can be accumulated and Fourier transformed, enhancing S/N ratio of the spectrum. This in turn facilitates the analysis of samples with low abundant nuclei and smaller gyro-magnetic ratios, e.g.,13C, 29Si, 15N etc.
  • NMR studies find applications in some of following areas :
  • Molecular conformation in solution
  • Quantitative analysis of mixtures containing known compounds
  • Determining the content and purity of a sample
  • Through space connectivity (overhauser effect)
