New Spinsolve Publications

March 19th, 2017, by

The Spinsolve is not only a perfect tool to teach NMR to Chemistry students, but its performance enables it to be used for serious research. This is evidenced in the published papers from our users. Over the last few months there has been a number of new publications featuring Spinsolve. In this post we will highlight a few of them. Click here for a full comprehensive list of publications.

The Chemistry Department of the University of Helsinki uses a Magritek Spinsolve Benchtop NMR spectrometer

December 14th, 2016, by

Dr Leena Kaisalo heads up the Organic Chemistry student laboratory at the University of Helsinki. While the Laboratory’s research focuses on organic synthesis, Dr Kaisalo’s role is to lead the teaching of bachelor and masters students in various analytical techniques including NMR.

Karel de Grote University College in Antwerp uses Spinsolve for research and teaching

November 1st, 2016, by

Dr Jeroen Geuens is a member of the Centre of Expertise on Sustainable Chemistry (CESC) based in Antwerp at the Karel de Grote University College. The Centre specialises in research and services related to chemical and production processes together with offering professional degree courses.

Before discovering the Spinsolve benchtop NMR from Magritek they could only get access to NMR measurements by taking their samples to the University of Antwerp. The Spinsolve is now used continuously for both teaching and research in the CESC. Dr Geuens takes up the story.

Benchtop qNMR evaluation

September 18th, 2016, by

In an earlier post on qNMR we described how benchtop NMR can be used to quantify the concentration of a sample or measure its purity. When such quantitative methods are validated, there are standard requirements for accuracy, precision, range, and linearity over that range that need to be met.

For example, the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) specifies the general requirements for a Category I NMR method when measuring a drug substance (there are other specifications for finished products and impurities). These specifications are listed in the table at the end of this post and are compared to the measured Spinsolve performance.

We have validated the Spinsolve benchtop qNMR performance by measuring the purity of one reference standard, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), with another, maleic acid. Maleic acid is a common reference standard for qNMR, so this was used as the reference to measure the known purity of MSM (specified 99.5% pure). A spectrum of the mixture in D2O is shown in Figure 1.

Updated examples of Spinsolve NMR spectra

March 6th, 2017, by

Our development team is constantly working on improving performance of the Spinsolve. And as a result the quality of NMR spectra you can obtain with Spinsolve has continued to improve. To show this, we have been updating the NMR spectral examples that are available on this website, and also updating Spinsolve 60 MHz data. So please go to Example NMR Spectra and browse through the page. Hope you find these examples useful!

Stream the Webinar: Thinking Outside the (Benchtop) Box – High-Field NMR Techniques on Benchtop Instruments

October 29th, 2016, by

Did you miss our recent webinar ? No problem, just click the red button below to stream a replay of the webinar held on 27th October 2016: Thinking Outside the (Benchtop) Box – High-Field NMR Techniques on Benchtop Instruments

 




Stream the Webinar Recording



 

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • High-field techniques that are now possible on benchtop instruments.
  • Applications and problems solved by advancements in benchtop NMR spectroscopy.
  • The size, ease-of-use, and economic advantages of benchtop instruments over high-field machines.

In recent years benchtop NMR spectrometers have become an increasingly viable alternative to high-field systems. Many demanding resolution and sensitivity requirements can now be met with modern methods and instruments. In this webinar we illustrate how a number of well-established and modern high-field NMR techniques, such as 2D, non-uniform sampling (NUS), and pure shift experiments, can be implemented on a benchtop NMR system to solve problems and applications previously considered beyond reach.

The NEW Spinsolve ULTRA – best resolution and lineshape

March 28th, 2017, by

Thrilled to announce the launch of the NEW Spinsolve ULTRA Benchtop NMR system. The Spinsolve ULTRA has the field homogeneity of a superconducting NMR magnet (0.2 Hz / 6 Hz / 12 Hz) in a compact and robust benchtop unit.

The Spinsolve ULTRA brochure can be downloaded here.

When combined with solvent suppression it allows users to resolve compounds dissolved at sub-millimolar concentrations in protonated solvents, such as water. The example below shows how effective the suppression of the very large water signal is. This enables metabolites at concentrations down to a few hundred micromolars to be detected in an 8 minute measurement.

Please contact us to discuss if Spinsolve ULTRA is useful for your application.
