Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)



Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)

An analytical method with numerous applications that allows the detection of subatomic and structural information of molecules. It works by applying a strong magnetic field (the stronger the field the higher the resolution) to a sample and then measuring how the system responds to radio waves, which is electromagnetic radiation of the appropriate energy to be absorbed by a nucleus resulting in a switch of its spin.
