Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

NMR spectroscopy is a technique which exploits the magnetic properties of certain nuclei that possess capability of spinning. NMR is a powerful tool for structure elucidation of unknown organic compounds. The proton NMR and carbon-13 NMR are widely used by organic chemist. Application includes characterizing natural products, foods, understanding protein and nucleic acid structure and function, membrane proteins/protein fibrils, all kinds of polymers, chemical analysis in inorganic chemistry, fuel cells etc.
