Benchtop NMR comes to Scotland
As of March 2016, the University of Edinburgh School of Chemistry will receive a desktop NMR spectrometer (60 MHz NMReady 60e by Nanalysis). This instrument does not require cryogens neither electricity for its persistent magnet. You can simply plug it in and measure proton NMR spectra. It takes standard 5 mm NMR tubes, just like its bigger brothers. In the following months we will bring it to high-schools, undergraduate teaching labs and industrial labs across Scotland. What better way to learn about NMR than via hands-on experience with a cool piece of kit!
