Using Phosphorus NMR spectroscopy to analyze compounds







What can you do with 31P NMR?

31P NMR aids in determining or confirming the structure of phosphorus containing compounds. Try using 31P to study enzyme kinetics, biomolecules, and reaction rates or to determine the purity of phosphorus containing materials. it reveals structural and dynamical information of diverse biological and non-biological systems.

Did You Know?

The nuclear properties of 31P make it ideal for NMR spectroscopy.

Workers in the field have been publishing data since the 1950’s, so there are extensive literature resources to help solve your research problems.
