In this webinar we will look more closely at The Spinsolve benchtop NMR as a tool for polymer chemistry. The focus will be on 1D and 2D possibilities to characterize homo- and copolymers, monomers, and natural polymers.
About this webinar
In recent years, benchtop NMR spectrometers have improved their performance considerably. This has led to an enhancement in the range and scope of possible applications and uses for the instrument.
Particularly in the field of polymer chemistry, the ability to acquire high quality NMR spectra directly in the laboratory has proven to be of great value, either for R&D chemists who previously had to wait for NMR results from remote or centralized equipment, but as well for QC labs, where benchtop NMR can provide now simple, automated and robust solutions.

Accuracy in quantitative analysis
Attend the webinar on polymer chemistry and you will:
- Understand how modern 1D and 2D NMR techniques can be used to characterize monomers and polymers
- Realize how easy it is to determine quality parameters in a fully automated way
- Learn about self-diffusion measurements with strong pulsed field gradients for polymer characterization
- Be impressed by how benchtop NMR can be used as online detector for size exclusion chromatography
- Presentation 1 - Dr. Hélène Freichels - The Spinsolve benchtop NMR as a tool for polymer chemistry
- Live Q&A
About the event speakers
Dr. Hélène Freichels has collected many years of experience in polymer synthesis within different academic institutions. First Hélène practiced at the University of Liège (Belgium), during her PhD at the "Center for Education and Research on Macromolecules, headed by Prof C. Jérôme. During this time, she was active in synthesis of biocompatible and biodegradable (co)polymers for biomedical applications.
After that, she went to the group of Prof K. Landfester for a postdoctoral stay at the "Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research“(Mainz, Germany). She learnt about the (inverse) mini-emulsion technique to prepare polymeric nanoparticles, mainly for biomedical applications. Before joining Magritek as an application scientist and sales representative for France and Belgium, she worked as a project leader at the "DWI-Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials“(Aachen, Germany). In this last academic position, Hélène was - among others - in charge of the know-how transfer in the polymer synthesis to technicians.
Who should attend
If you are a polymer chemist, analytical chemist, QA/QC laboratory manager, or someone interested in practical applications of benchtop NMR, then this webinar is for you.
