Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy - NMR

This relies on the fact that magnetic nuclei in a magnetic field will absorb and re-emit electromagnetic radiation. All isotopes that contain an odd number of protons and/or neutrons have a magnetic moment, the most commonly studied of which are 1H and 13C. The frequency at which different nuclei resonant is dependent on its local chemical environment and so the results of NMR spectroscopy can be used to give information about chemical structures, dynamics and chemical environment of molecules.
