Manufacturer: Thermo Fisher Scientific
Product name: PicoSpin
Reaction Monitoring Accessory for Benchtop NMR
For: Laboratory analysis
Measurement mode: NMR fluid capillary system
Unique features: Adds the dimension of time to benchtop NMR
New this year: The new reaction monitoring accessory for Thermo Scientific picoSpin high-resolution benchtop spectrometers enables students to monitor chemical reactions in classroom and laboratory experiments. This reaction monitoring accessory provides more information to students in real time, enabling organic chemistry instructors to enhance their curriculums and provide a richer experience in spectroscopy. The accessory includes a dedicated lesson plan with instructions on how to set up and acquire data, and procedures to process and analyze results.
Suggested applications: In teaching environments, students gain hands-on experience of chemical reaction mechanisms, kinetics, thermodynamics, and other physical organic properties to complement the core of your undergraduate chemistry curriculum.
