CHAPTER 3

Instrumentation

In this chapter, the major components of a high-resolution pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer used to conduct experiments in the liquid and solid state will be described, as well as their contribution to the spectrometer performance and especially to the NMR sensitivity. Recent technological advances (magnet, probe design, hyphenated NMR) to improve NMR sensitivity and to enhance the ability of NMR spectroscopy for a high and fast throughput screening will also be discussed. Mention will be made to the bench-top apparatus for performing time-domain NMR experiments.
