Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is based on a magnetic property of the atomic nucleus called spin. Because of this property electromagnetic radiation in the radio wave area with the right frequency may interact with atomic nuclei. The result is a spectrum that shows the magnetic fingerprint of a molecule, and that can also give information about the physical and chemical environment of the molecule.
We use NMR spectroscopy to solve problems related to protein structures, petroleum chemistry, natural compounds, biological membranes, MRI contrast agents and various types of porous systems.
