Elastic air: NMR of hydrogels

Date: Aug 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Superflexible aerogels can be used as highly efficient absorbents, thermal insulators, and pressure sensors. Now, a team from Japan with a little help from nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy have developed super-elastic aerogels that can be processed easily and at low cost.

Fungal killer: NMR reveals wall architecture

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

There are very few effective antifungal agents in the pharmaceutical arsenal and unfortunately, many types of fungal infection can kill. New research based on solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has looked at fungal cell wall and revealed details of its architecture that might be a new target for drugs to combat such infections.

Journal Highlight: Seafood phospholipids: Extraction efficiency and phosphorous nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P NMR) profiles

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The absolute concentration of phospholipids in five marine tissues has been determined using quantitative phosphorous nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

Packaged paclitaxel: NMR unravels cyclodextrin

Date: Jul 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Supramolecular nanoassemblies that can emulate and perhaps modulate biological processes have become a focus of research. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and other techniques have now been used to follow one such self-assembled system, a cyclodextrin molecule bearing a photoisomer and hooked to cellular microtubules using the anticancer agent paclitaxel.

Journal Highlight: Insight into old and new pure shift nuclear magnetic resonance methods for enantiodiscrimination

Date: Jul 2, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Recent developments in the pure shift 1H NMR-based methods for enantiomer resolution and enantiodiscrimination have been reviewed and various pure shift methods used for enantiodiscrimination and measurement of enantiomeric excess discussed.

Motor neurone link: NMR investigates proteins

Date: Jul 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy technology has been used to investigate how two proteins important in a hereditary form of motor neurone disease, Kap-β2 importin and the FUS protein, bind to each other. The research could ultimately lead the way to a better understanding of this neurodegenerative disease.

Bronze Age olive oil: NMR in old Italy

Date: Jun 15, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and other techniques has been used to analyse an ancient pottery. The data suggest that "Italians" were using olive oil at least 700 hundred years earlier than previously thought, in the early Bronze Age.

Diamonds are for NMR: Cutting costs

Date: Jun 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

 Diamonds are relatively inexpensive when compared to making and sustaining superconducting magnets. As such, new research offers the possibility of a very-low-cost alternative to multimillion-dollar magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment and the costly nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers used in drug discovery and other areas by using the former to preclude the need for the latter.

Time team: NMR finds crystal

Date: May 15, 2018

Author:

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has been involved in uncovering hints of a time crystal, a form of matter that "ticks" when exposed to an electromagnetic pulse. The time crystal was found in the most unlikely of places: a crystal garden kit.
