Robot Chemist publication in Nature includes a Spinsolve benchtop NMR spectrometer

The group of Professor Lee Cronin at the University of Glasgow has combined machine learning with a chemical reaction system to speed up the discovery of new chemical reactions, which is an inherently unpredictable and time consuming process. This new approach of an Organic Synthesis Robot uses a Spinsolve Benchtop NMR spectrometer as an integral …

Gradients in NMR Spectroscopy – Part 4: A short Intermezzo on Diffusion

Part 3 discussed how a matched pair of positive/negative magnetic field gradient pulses can be used to encode spins for their displacement. We can distinguish between two basic types of displacement: All spins are moving together with the same speed along the same direction. This leads to a phase shift in the signal. All spins …
