Reaction monitoring can give you significant insight into your chemistry – through, for example, the detection of intermediates, or deducing the rate of reaction. During this webinar you will see nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) data obtained using a flow-cell that allows continuous sampling of a reaction. We will highlight esterification and saponification reactions and examine the relevant thermodynamic data. The data you’ll see was acquired on an X-Pulse, a 60 MHz broadband benchtop spectrometer, so you can see how having low-field NMR instrumentation in your lab can help you to obtain relevant – and pertinent – data.
By the end of the webinar you will have learned:
- how multinuclear benchtop NMR can assist your understanding of reactions
- how the flow cell integrates with existing Pulsar and X-Pulse instrumentation to enable continuous flow sampling
- about some of the reactions that can be monitored and the thermodynamic data that can be obtained
- about the stability that the flow-cell offers in order to obtain 1D and 2D NMR data
This webinar has been brought in association with Oxford Instruments.
‘Oxford Instruments is a leading provider of benchtop NMR instrumentation.
We supply systems into industry and academia for research and quality assurance/quality control applications. As well as our X-Pulse high-resolution, broadband benchtop NMR spectrometer, we provide multiple low-resolution, time-domain instruments. Our MQC+ benchtop analysers measure oil, water, fluorine and solid fat in a variety of samples and are typically used for quality assurance and quality control in the food, agriculture, polymer and chemical industries. We also provide several TD-NMR research systems and the GeoSpec instrument range for rock core analysis.’
