Conference Details: 2nd Annual Practical Applications of NMR in Industry Conference Organized by Cambridge Healthtech Institute Hilton Charlotte University Place, Charlotte, NC, February 3-5, 2014 Building on the success of last years 1st Annual PANIC NMR Conference it has been decided that the 2nd Annual PANIC NMR Conference would be organized cooperatively between the original organizing committee and CHI. Details on the conference can be found at: PANIC Conference Website A promotional flyer for the conference can be found here: PANIC NMR Flyer Anyone interested in industrial applications of all forms of NMR spectroscopy is encouraged to attend this practical NMR conference where the emphasis is placed on everyday utilization of the technology rather than cutting edge NMR research which is often far beyond the capabilities of the everyday user. John Edwards of Process NMR Associates is serving on the organizing committee and chairing two technical sessions - one on On-Line/At-Line/Benchtop NMR and another on NMR of Materials. If you are interested in presenting or sponsoring the conference please contact CHI through the website.
Process NMR Associates has just finished completion of a complete update and expansion of the NMR facilities at it's Danbury CT location. The faithful Varian Unity-300 spectrometer has been replaced by a Mercury-300 VX spectrometer and a second 300 MHz Mercury Plus system has been installed. This second 300 MHz NMR includes PFG and an indirect detection probe. These instruments compliment a Varian UnityPlus-200 spectrometer equipped with a 7 mm Solid-State MAS probe for analysis of solid materials. The doubling of the liquid-state NMR capacity will allow rapid turnaround of all sample submissions and expand the experimental capabilities of the facility. Process NMR Associates is a private corporation providing analytical NMR services and consulting since 1997. The NMR facility in Danbury includes two 300 MHz, one 200 MHz, and two 60 MHz high resolution NMR spectrometers. The facility also houses a 10mm, 18mm, and 40mm TD-NMR facility for relaxation studies. The company also has gas chromatography, micro-ESR, and FTIR-ATR capabilities. For details of the analytical services provided please contact John Edwards.
An article by Dr. John Edwards of Process NMR Associates and researchers at the Southern Regional Research Center of the US Department of Agriculture (Dr. H.N. Cheng, Lynda H. Wartelle, K. Thomas Klasson) has been accepted for publication in the Elsevier Journal Carbon. The paper entitled "Solid state NMR and ESR studies of activated carbons produced from pecan shells" is available at the following link: Carbon Paper . Process NMR Associates provided the solid-state 13C NMR, TD-NMR, and ESR spectroscopy for the analysis of the activated carbons derived from pecan shells.
