Multiple peak solvent suppression with 13C decoupling

June 25th, 2019, by

In a previous post we demonstrated the use of multiple peak solvent suppression on the Spinsolve ULTRA benchtop NMR spectrometer.  While the sequence effectively suppressed 3 NMR solvent peaks, it did not reduce the carbon satellites of the solvent which are at a different frequency, and had a similar intensity to our compound of interest and therefore might interfere with our measurements. Fortunately on a Spinsolve ULTRA Carbon spectrometer we can use the carbon channel to do 13C decoupling at the same time as suppressing the solvent peaks.  An example of multiple peak solvent suppression with carbon decoupling is shown below in Figure 1. Notice how the peak labelled with the purple dot is revealed once the carbon satellites are suppressed.

How to Evaluate a Benchtop NMR Instrument’s Technical Performance Part 4: 13C Sensitivity

July 17th, 2019, by

After 1H, 13C is easily the next most important nuclide in the NMR periodic table; 13C measurements can provide a wealth of valuable structural info. Unfortunately, with a receptivity that is around 5,500 smaller than that of 1H, 13C is a much less sensitive nuclide. This lower sensitivity demands the maximum performance from the NMR spectrometer to keep the measurement times and sample concentration within practical limits. Since 13C NMR has the reputation to be challenging even for high field spectrometers, people tend to think that only overnight experiments can be performed on bench top systems. In the first example below we want to show you that even at frequencies like 43, 60 or 80 MHz high quality 13C spectra can be acquired in a single scan. If your goal is to teach the principles of 13C NMR to students, it is worth knowing that good 13C NMR spectra can be acquired on concentrated organic liquid samples in just under a minute. Moreover students can collect a whole set of powerful multidimensional heteronuclear experiments in well under an hour. The spectrum below of neat propylbenzoate could serve as a useful example for teaching 13C NMR in an educational environment.

How to Evaluate a Benchtop NMR Instrument’s Technical Performance Part 3: 1H sensitivity

July 4th, 2019, by

In my recent posts on evaluating benchtop NMR system performance, I discussed the fundamental role the static (B0) magnetic field homogeneity plays in defining the lineshape and with it the resolution performance of the instrument. However, the quality of the magnetic field affects much more than just the instrument’s lineshape and resolution: since broadening of the lines due to B0 inhomogeneity causes them to be lower in amplitude, the quality of the field also directly affects the instrument’s sensitivity. In this post I explore the concept of instrument sensitivity in more detail and look at how to measure  1H sensitivity.
