picoSpin, LLC
Making NMR Accessible: picoSpin-45 NMR Spectroscopy in the Classroom
Where: Pennsylvania Convention Center
Room: 202A
When: Tuesday, August 21, 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
The picoSpin-45 NMR spectrometer is a 45 MHz permanent magnet spectrometer providing high-resolution spectra in a portable, compact design. Measuring a 1H NMR spectrum to determine product purity, monitor the course of a chemical reaction, or elucidating molecular structure is a valuable skill best acquired through hands-on experience as it personalizes the process for students, making it a much more meaningful learning experience, and remains a powerful teaching method for instructors. The low cost and small footprint of miniature and bench-top instrumentation brings NMR to the student, in the classroom or lab, providing increased accessibility to a broader group of students. The picoSpin-45 spectrometer has applications in organic, physical and analytical chemistry teaching labs and classrooms, from basic spectroscopic concepts such as multiplet patterns and spin-spin coupling, to more advanced applications of chemical reaction dynamics and measuring spin-lattice relaxation (T1) delays.

Charge Detection and IC-ICP/MS: The Latest in Ion Chromatography Detection. Come and learn about the latest advances in IC detection systems. The all new Charge Detector (QD) responds to ionic species in solution by measuring the current flow between two electrodes at a fixed potential. With the QD, response is proportional to charge which can lead to universal calibration while weakly dissociated species (organic acids, amines, borate, and silicate) give a more linear response. The QD compliments the more traditional conductivity detector. Also see how combining IC with ICP/MS allows speciation of multivalent elements such as arsenic, chromium, selenium, iodine and others. Highlights will include the determination of arsenic speciation in apple juice and hexavalent chromium in drinking water. High Pressure Ion Chromatography (HPIC) for Increased Resolution and Speed. With the advent of capillary ion chromatography systems that can operate up to 5000 psi, combined with smaller particle size ion exchange packing materials (4µm) the realm of high pressure IC now affords increased separation efficiencies, increased resolution and faster separations. Come see how this technology can be applied to a variety of sample types ranging from environmental, food and beverage and industrial applications. Going Modular: Introducing the Newest Innovations in GC. Discover the next level of instrument usability with the next generation GC with engineered miniaturized, plug-in injectors and detectors, redefining usability in routine and high throughput laboratories. See why the Trace 1300 GC may be the best fit for your laboratory. Maximize GC-MS Productivity and Flexibility. Learn how you can tackle today’s challenges with the advanced features of the single quadrupole ISQ MS. Discover how the innovative ISQ ExtractaBrite source assembly can be removed and replaced in less than three minutes without venting the mass spectrometer. Also learn about the advanced capabilities of the ITQ ion trap GC-MS systems.
