In this article Dimitris Argyropoulos (NMR Business Director) and Yalda Mobarhan (Marketing Communications Specialist) of ACD/Labs discuss how benchtop NMR is revolutionizing access to this analytical technique.

NMR spectroscopy is an essential analytical tool in the chemical and structural characterization of organic, inorganic, and biological samples. Due to high capital and maintenance costs, operational complexity and large magnet sizes, high-field NMR application is typically limited to advanced NMR facilities and R&D departments. Recent advances in permanent rare-earth magnet technology have allowed the introduction of benchtop NMR spectrometers that employ small permanent homogeneous magnets operating at 1H NMR frequencies of up to 100 MHz.

Benchtop instruments have made NMR spectroscopy more accessible to chemists and have opened new opportunities for the chemical industry. As this technology continues to evolve, benchtop NMR users will experience streamlined industrial workflows and accelerated innovation in Research and Development.
