Pulsar™ is a cryogen-free benchtop NMR spectrometer that can easily be sited in the Undergraduate Chemistry laboratory allowing convenient hands-on NMR for students - including acquisition of their own NMR spectra and analysis of the compounds they have made. A simple to use software interface and standard sampling using 5mm NMR tubes enables a high throughput of samples in any busy laboratory.
“Pulsar was introduced into a year 3 synthetic chemistry undergraduate laboratory at Warwick and used to follow real time organic, inorganic and polymer reactions taken direct from the reaction medium. Installation was simply plugging in the 13A plug and leaving to warm up overnight. The absence of the requirement for deuterated solvents and the ability to collect excellent quality FT NMR in a single pulse in less than 2 minutes with instant exportation into all NMR software was incredibly valuable for our students. The experiment was easier and quicker than a TLC (Thin Layer Chromatography) with massively more information. The instant availability of the data proved invaluable for the selection of experiments required on the standard high field NMR spectrometer, thus freeing up instrument time and greatly reducing the need for time on more expensive instrumentation. This is a must for undergraduate laboratories and research laboratories without access to high field instrumentation.”
