Part I: NMR Spectroscopy across more than order of magnitude in Field Strength.
Bruker BioSpin has recently expanded the range of field strength of its instruments in both directions. 2019 saw the first commercial 1.2 GHz spectrometer coming to field but Bruker also launched a 80 MHz benchtop at Euromar in Europe.
This workshop will address observations and recommendations for working with NMR over such a wide range of frequencies.
60 to 100 MHz NMR spectrometers were the mainstay in the field until the early 80’s when higher field instruments found their way into the laboratories. With higher fields becoming available lower field instruments fell a bit out of favor. But recently benchtop instruments have seen a resurgence while at the same time maximum field strength have reached new heights.
This workshop will discuss various aspects of collecting NMR spectra. Users of “mid”-field NMR spectrometers need to pay attention to a number of factors when going to either end of the frequency scale. Topics such as spectral width, excitation profiles, spectral patterns, relaxation, decoupling and more will be discussed.
