Polymer Applications

All Common NMR Polymer Experiments, including FID, CPMG (T2) and T1 Studies.

Degree of Crystallinity (Density), Plasticizer Content and Xylene Solubles (MR equivalent) Measurement.

Variable Temperature Studies from -50 to +150 degrees C.

Automated Time Series Experiments to Investigate Physical Changes as a Function of Temperature.

Fast RF Probes, High Power RF Transmitters and Rapid Data Acquisition for Solids Type Experiments.

Optional Magnetic Field Gradients for Spatially Resolved Studies.

Magnetic Resonance data at various temperatures for a polymer passing through the glass transition temperature.
At low temperatures, signal decay is rapid. As the system passes through the transistion temperature,
 the decay lengthens in time as the chains become more mobile.

About  Magnetic Resonance in Polymer Analysis

Magnetic Resonance can be used for a wide variety of applications in the characterisation of polymers. Simple QC applications include density measurement (degree of crystallinity), percentage plasticizer content, melt index and xylene solubles measurement.

In addition, glass transition temperature studies can be used to investigate polymer mechanical properties as a function of temperature. 

With their automated sample temperature capaibility, high power RF solids probes and automated analysis software,

AMR R4 MR Benchtop Analyzers are an ideal tool for both polymer quality control measurements and research experiments.
