Applications

 The scientific literature contains literally thousands of reports concerning fundamental and applied studies of NMR that implicate its use in determining  properties and compositions of wide varieties of materials, both liquid and solid.  The literature also contains numerious specific examples of the use of time-domain NMR for component analysis. In most cases, these techniques can be directly applied for other determinations wherein the physical and NMR properties of the samples are similar.  The list of time-domain NMR analysis applications which follow is therefore necessarily very incomplete.  We are continuously developing new applications and we invite you to contact us at PCT to discuss your specific analysis needs.
