Due to their high retail value, some edible oils are often blended wilfully with other more inexpensive vegetable oils. Two recent publications by Kim et al. and Krause et al. in international journals were able to demonstrate that Spinsolve 1H benchtop NMR spectroscopy is a possible cost-effective method for discriminating the authenticity of some vegetable oils.
Overlaid 60 MHz 1H‑NMR spectra of genuine patchouli oils spiked with 9 different adulterants at 20%.
Our applications and support team will have a live, working Spinsolve Benchtop NMR and will also be there to answer all your benchtop NMR spectroscopy questions. We are looking forward to meeting you !!!
Magritek is participating in the leading Polymer and Organic chemistry conference the 17th Polymers and Organic Chemistry Conference.

Fatty acids consist of long carbon chains ending with a carboxylic acid on one side and a methyl group on the other. Most naturally occurring fatty acids have an even number of carbon atoms and can be either saturated or unsaturated. Unsaturated fatty acids have one or more double bonds between carbon atoms. Typical fatty acids found in vegetable oils are saturated palmitic acid (C16:0) and stearic acid (C18:0), as well as oleic acid (C18:1) with a single double bond starting at carbon nine (omega-9), linoleic acid (C18:2) with two double bonds starting at position 6 (omega-6), and alpha-linolenic acid with three double bonds starting at position 3 (omega-3).

Magritek is delighted to announce its participation in the 1st National meeting of the Swedish Chemical Society from 17th to 20th June in Lund, Sweden. Please stop by at the booth #23 and talk to our scientists about the capabilities and applications of Spinsolve Benchtop NMR system. Our applications and support team will have a live, working Spinsolve Benchtop NMR.
WORKSHOP – “The Spinsolve Benchtop NMR Spectrometer and its Applications in Academia, and Industries like, pharmaceutical, fine chemical, petrochemical, forensics, and food ”
Magritek will perform one workshop session Tuesday 19th June from 13:00 hr to 13:45 hr. We are looking forward to seeing you at this event!

Wageningen University & Research (WUR) is formed from the collaboration between Wageningen University and the Wageningen Research foundation. With the mission “to explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life,” its staff and students work in the domain of healthy foods and living environments. Dr Teris van Beek is a Lecturer in the Department of Agrotechnology & Food Sciences. Among his responsibilities is the coordination of the undergraduate course in analytical chemistry where 220 molecular life sciences and biotechnology students are introduced to practical spectroscopy each year (UV, IR, MS, NMR, structure elucidation).
