Study of transport processes in Li-ion electrolytes by Multi-nuclear diffusion NMR

With the growing market for electric and hybrid cars, a major focus of scientists today lies on the development of more efficient rechargeable batteries. In these devices, lithium salts are used as electrolytes dissolved in room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs). A good understanding of the transport properties in the electrolytes is essential for the optimization of …

How to Evaluate a Benchtop NMR Instrument’s Technical Performance Part 4: 13C Sensitivity

After 1H, 13C is easily the next most important nuclide in the NMR periodic table; 13C measurements can provide a wealth of valuable structural info. Unfortunately, with a receptivity that is around 5,500 smaller than that of 1H, 13C is a much less sensitive nuclide. This lower sensitivity demands the maximum performance from the NMR …

How to Evaluate a Benchtop NMR Instrument’s Technical Performance Part 3: 1H sensitivity

In my recent posts on evaluating benchtop NMR system performance, I discussed the fundamental role the static (B0) magnetic field homogeneity plays in defining the lineshape and with it the resolution performance of the instrument. However, the quality of the magnetic field affects much more than just the instrument’s lineshape and resolution: since broadening of …

How to Evaluate a Benchtop NMR Instrument’s Technical Performance Part 2: 1H Lineshape and Resolution

In this post, I’m going to discuss a specific test for evaluating the resolution or lineshape of a benchtop NMR system. This test is measured on proton (1H) as the NMR spectrum is sensitive to the spectrometer resolution and we can make the measurement with a single scan. Resolution and lineshape refer to the width …

How to Evaluate a Benchtop NMR Instrument’s Technical Performance

When evaluating a benchtop NMR instrument there are several key performance characteristics that have a very significant impact on how the instrument will perform in your lab. These key performance characteristics are: The spectral resolution, which is directly related to the magnet and determines the width or shape of the NMR lines (often called lineshape), …

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 …
