1 NMR Technology The analytical measurement principle Qualion NMR

2 What is ¹H NMR? Hydrogen Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Provides picture of the hydrocarbon structure, from which we determine physical and chemical information Non invasive like MRI*, therefore all samples can be returned back to the process. Heavy opaque or dark materials easily analyzed Technology developed since 1950s MRI * Magnetic Resonance Imaging

3 What is ¹H NMR Analysis? NMR = Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Nuclear - NMR looks at the nuclei of molecules (protons-neutrons) More specifically at their nuclear spin Some nuclei have a magnetic moment due to that spin (behave like a small magnet) Most important, nuclei are 1 H, 13 C, 19 F and 31 P ¹H-NMR is looking at ¹H-protons in molecules, excellent for hydrocarbon analysis

4 The Electromagnetic Spectrum NMR spectroscopy uses radio-waves to interact with samples SPECTROSCOPY ANALYTICAL TECHNOLOGIES X-ray UV VIS IR Microwave ESR NMR

5 ¹H Proton – Magnetic Moment (M) M Hydrogen Atom (Proton) Proton is spinning + Magnetic moment (M) generated

6 Nuclear Spins and Magnetic Fields With no magnetic field, magnetic moments M are randomly oriented In a strong magnetic field (B o ), magnetic moments M align along B o M M M N S

7 Alignment and precessing of M Magnetic Moments Align and Precess at a Frequency w o w o is proportional to the Bo size e.g. Bo = 1.35 Tesla w o = 57 MHz N S Bo S WoWo

8 Bulk Magnetic Moment – M 0 Precessing spins can be described as a bulk magnetic moment Mo* *Mo = Summation of individual magnetic moments of all protons in the sample BoBo Mo N S

9 Re-align to a second magnetic axis Magnetic field B 1 causes M o to move and re-align to the second magnetic axis 57 MHz BoBo MoMo B1B1 N S RF pulse is turned on for 4-20 microseconds and generates a second magnetic field B 1

10 Re-align to original magnetic axis 57 MHz BoBo MoMo B1B1 N S When RF Pulse ends Relaxation of Mo generates an RF current that is picked by the irradiation coil : A decay signal is generated, called Free Induction Decay signal (FID) FID The protons relax and re-align to their original equilibrium position along Bo Axis

12 Multiple matched magnet segments. physically brought together to form condensed magnetic field of 1.35 Tesla NS Mechanical shims obtain rough B o homogeneity N S Electrical shim gradients N S Current passed through wire gradients creates shaped magnetic fields that are used to straighten field lines NMR permanent magnet technology

13 Fast Fourier Transform- FFT F.F.T. Free Induction Decay(FID) Time domain signal NMR Spectrum Frequency domain signal

14 Chemical Shift in NMR spectra How does the NMR resolve the different protons in the spectra ? Each proton in a different chemical environment (bond) senses a different magnetic field B X due to the shielding created by surrounding electrons More electrons = more shielding

15 Protons in different chemical environment Proton External applied field Bo S Actual field at protons N electron

16 Difference in sensed magnetic field Due to a difference in the sensed magnetic field, protons A and B precess at a different frequency W A and W B w A and w B are proportional to the size of B A and B B N S Bo S WAWA B BABA The precessing frequency becomes the fingerprint of the chemical environment of the different protons WBWB
