How to Boost Your Battery Production and Performance with NMR Technology

Following an unprecedented surge in lithium-ion batteries, battery research and production have entered a new phase. The goal is ambitious: to guarantee the safety and sustainability of batteries, enhance performance, and scale up production.

Join Bruker's NMR experts to explore and discuss how NMR spectroscopy offers a range of analytical capabilities to assist battery production and future innovations.

Overview of the Webinar

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a useful analytical method for determining the chemical and physical characteristics of matter. Just as the analytical challenges across the battery value chain are diverse, so are the various iterations of this technique.

This webinar will introduce the fundamental characteristics of the various kinds of NMR instruments (Fourier 80 benchtop, AVANCE floorstanding, and TD-NMR benchtop).

It will also cover typical techniques relevant to battery materials, followed by insightful application examples focusing on liquid and pasty samples such as brines, electrolytes, and slurries.

What to Expect

This webinar will help broaden your knowledge of how modern NMR technology can benefit battery research and development.

Bruker’s experts will highlight essential battery-related materials and discuss how NMR spectroscopy can be applied to identify and quantify components in mixtures, attain insights into chemical processes, or deduce physical properties vital for economic production and battery performance.
