NMR is an abbreviation for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. An NMR instrument allows the molecular structure of a material to be analyzed by observing and measuring the interaction of nuclear spins when placed in a powerful magnetic field.
For the analysis of molecular structure at the atomic level, electron microscopes and X-ray diffraction instruments can also be used, but the advantages of NMR are that sample measurements are non-destructive and there is less sample preparation required. Fields of application include bio, foods, and chemistry, as well as new fields such as battery films and organic EL, which are improving and developing at remarkable speed. NMR has become an indispensable analysis tool in cutting-edge science and technology fields.
The JEOL Ltd. offers a line of most advanced NMR spectrometers and acessories.
The ECZR NMR spectrometer (JNM-ECZR series), a member of the JNM-ECZ series of instruments, is a new research system that fully incorporates the latest digital and high frequency technologies (left image).
The new JNM-ECZS NMR spectrometer from JEOL (right image) has functionality and performance normally only found on high end instruments. However, the main spectrometer chassis has a footprint of only 57% of comparable instruments, thus making it the smallest NMR spectrometer operating at 400MHz in the world..
