Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Sample Submission Guidelines

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a versatile and highly-sophisticated spectroscopic technique with a wide range of applications, from structural elucidation of complex molecules, to 3D imaging of fresh tissues, to simple ingredient assays for quality assurance.

In NMR, there is a close relationship between the quality of the sample and the quality of the resulting spectrum. Follow the following simple sample requirements to ensure that the useful information provided by your prepared sample is not lost or obscured.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Sample Submission Guidelines

NMR Sample Requirements

Sample Requirements for NMR:

  • The purity of the submitted sample should generally be greater than 95 %, without impurities such as iron filings and dust.
  • Provide as much information as possible about the sample, such as possible structure, expected results and solubility of the solvent. If there are any special requirements, please specify them.
  • For 1H spectra of organic compounds (except polymers), the required sample quantity should be greater than 5 mg. Similarly, for 13C spectra of organic compounds (except polymers), the required sample quantity should be greater than 15 mg. For polymers, the required sample quantity should be appropriately increased.
  • The volume of liquid sample should be at least 0.5 mL.

NMR Analysis Turnaround Time

NMR Analysis Turnaround Times

The analysis turnaround time for NMR depends on a variety of factors, including the type of sample being analyzed, the desired resolution, the strength of the magnetic field, and the specific experimental parameters.

After receiving your sample, we will dispatch the duly processed data to you within the temporal span of 2-5 working days. Nevertheless, if expeditious delivery of data is of utmost importance to you, please let us know in advance in order to make the necessary arrangements.
