Capturing free radicals with Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Spectroscopy
Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy is a magnetic resonance technique that can detect free radicals and transition metal ions.
It is a unique technique for shedding light on radical reactions and processes because of its ability to detect unambiguously paramagnetic species in a direct and non-intrusive manner. It is very versatile because it identifies, quantifies and characterizes paramagnetic species. EPR can be applied to samples in gaseous, liquid or sold states over a wide range of temperatures.
EPR spectroscopy is used to:
- Detect, identify, and quantify free radicals
- Study molecular structures, geometry, and dynamics
- Observe labeled species in situ in biological systems
- Understand redox processes, reaction kinetics, catalysis and more
This webinar introduces the technical and practical aspects, and capabilities of EPR spectroscopy to detect free radicals and transition metals in various types of samples and chemical processes. In addition, examples and tips on how to achieve successful experiment will be given with how-to’ videos:
- Following the kinetics of radical chemical reactions
- Identifying and quantifying radical intermediates
- Measuring metal complex
- Monitoring photo degradation
