Two channel 500 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer for solution-state NMR spectroscopy. Equipped with a dual 1H/13C helium-cooled cryoprobe.
NMR is an non-destructive technique that is primarily used for molecular structure determination, though many other applications of the technique are possible, including quantitative measurements for the analysis of mixtures. It is non-destructive. Sample quantities are strongly dependent on the information required and the instrument utilised, but for routine NMR work on a room temperature probe, typically mgs or 10mgs of sample are required. However, a cryoprobe is significantly more sensitive than a room temperature probe to the extent that experiments can typically be acquired ca. 16x faster (when sensitivity is the time limiting factor). The sample must dissolve in a solvent for solution-state NMR.
