Oxford Instruments has launched X-Pulse, a high-resolution 60 MHz benchtop NMR system with true multinuclear capability. The system can be tuned to any nucleus from 29Si to 31P easily, without having to change NMR probes. A unique flow cell and variable temperature probe allow dynamic chemical reactions to be continuously monitored, with the variable temperature capability from 20 °C to 70 °C. New shimming technology delivers lineshapes of less than 0.35 Hz/10 Hz as standard, making it easier to separate overlapping peaks and identify smaller concentrations of compounds. A traditional magnet design with high thermal mass makes X-Pulse insensitive to sample temperature variations, whether static or flowing, so that sample temperature artefacts are eliminated.
