Ever since Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) was first used in the mid-twentieth century, it became a crucial tool in modern chemistry. NRM has many useful applications for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
It is projected that the global pharmaceutical industry will be worth $1,170 billion by 2021. As such, pharmaceutical companies are entrenched in a drug discovery race in order to increase their market share.
When it comes to drug discovery, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is an invaluable asset. By using spectrometers, scientists are able to analyze samples at a molecular level without damaging the sample. NMR spectrometers use permanent or electromagnets and can range from 60 MHz to 100 MHz.
In simple terms, these machines facilitate an in-depth analysis of molecular structures by providing different components of a molecule such as type, number of parts, and how they combine to form the molecule.
However, using low field NRM spectr
