Enabling NMR In The Field
Although nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a powerful, non-destructive tool for identifying chemical structures, the analytical technique isn't mobile: It typically requires large, expensive instruments. Now researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have coupled a chemical separation method with a portable NMR device to produce a system that could allow scientists someday to use NMR spectroscopy in the field (Anal. Chem. DOI: 10.1021/ac102389b).. . .
