Latest Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance Stories
Avomeen Analytical Services partners with university labs to harness specialized instrumentation for investigative chemical analysis. Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) January
A new method to reveal the structure of proteins could help researchers understand biological molecules – both those involved in causing disease and those performing critical functions in healthy cells.
Scientists at the University of Warwick have used state-of-the-art nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques to shed new light on how pharmaceutical molecules pack together in the solid state.
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is one of the best tools for gaining insight into the structure and dynamics of molecules because nuclei in atoms within molecules will behave differently in a variety of chemical environments.
Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance, or SSNMR, is a valuable tool to image and analyze the chemical makeup of proteins and other biomolecules. But the imaging process is time-consuming and requires large amounts of costly isotope-labeled sample for study.
By Lawrie, Kirsten J Meredith, Paul; McGeary, Ross P ABSTRACT The isolation, structure determination and chemical characterization of eumelanins has been plagued by their very low solubility in organic solvents.
Using a nuclear magnetic resonance technique, University of Illinois at Chicago chemists have obtained the first molecular-level images of precursors of bundled fibrils that form the brain plaques seen in Alzheimer's disease.
