Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is an analytical chemistry technique in which there are nuclei in a magnetic field and it re-emit electromagnetic radiation. The theory behind NMR comes from the spin of a nucleus that can generate magnetic field without any external magnetic field so that the nuclear spins are random in direction. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is theoretically a powerful complex analytical tool. It is used for research to determine the content and purity of the sample. There are varieties of NMR techniques that are available and are used to acquire the desired results. In addition, Nuclear magnetic resonance is used in advanced medical imaging technique like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). NMR is also used in vivo phosphorus NMR spectroscopy in which the chemical shift is used to provide an indication.
On the basis of type Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) market has been segmented into resonance frequency and nuclei. By resonance frequency the market can be further segregated into sub-100 MHz, 300-400 MHz, 500 MHz, 600 MHz, 700-750MHz, 800-850 MHz and others. The global Nuclear Magnetic Resonance market can be categorized based on nuclei into 1H, 2H, 31P, 23 Na, 14N, 13C and 19F.
