Electron Paramagnetic Resonance – Bruker EMX EPR

Bruker EMX EPR

Available Methods and Accessories

  • X band microwave bridge and resonator
  • Q band microwave bridge and resonator

Sample Requirements

Soluble or solid samples. Samples must have an unpaired electron (paramagnetic) for this technique.

Summary of Technique

Samples are placed into a microwave cavity while the external magnetic field is changed. Electrons will undergo a change in alignment at the resonant frequency in the microwave field. This technique can be done in a quantitative method.

Information Provided & Detection Limits

EPR provides information on the electron environment of a nucleus. It can detect microgram quantities of radicals in a sample
