Epoxydized Natural Rubber Measurement

When natural rubber (NR) latex is epoxydized, it is converted to a new plastic (Epoxydized Natural Rubber or ENR) with many favorable properties. Damping and anti-vibration characteristics are improved. ENR is oil resistant and has a better air impermeability i.e. better sealing properties. ENR or Epoxyprene is a speciality polymer produced from natural rubber latex, …

Gradients in NMR Spectroscopy – Part 3: Encoding for Displacement using Pairs of Pulsed Gradients

Part 2 of this series discussed how pulsed magnetic field gradients (PFGs) can be used to encode spins for their position, whilst still having the advantage of uniform field during signal acquisition.In this post we will see how pairs of pulsed gradients can encode for molecular displacement. Consider the situation where we apply a second …
