Most users of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) instruments tend to dissolve their samples in deuterated analogues of common solvents like chloroform, acetone, or dimethyl sulfoxide. However, there are many applications, like reaction monitoring, where using a deuterated solvent is not actually necessary.
This webinar will review why deuterated solvents are used in NMR applications in the first place, discuss how one can perform the same actions without deuterium, and show practical examples of Non-Deuterated (No-D) NMR.
Presenter: Tim Bergeron, NMR Applications Chemist
